North Korea is one of the poorest countries in the world, but its leader Kim Jong Un has still found the money he needs to finance a nuclear weapons program, despite the country’s fundamental poverty and international economic sanctions.

This documentary looks at how, and introduces the men who have helped Kim Jong Un keep his dreams of reaching nuclear power status alive. North Korea has not reined in its nuclear program, despite a number of UN resolutions that have tried to force it to do so. So how has the isolated country kept the program going despite sanctions? Every year Pyongyang sends millions of North Korean workers abroad, selling their services to over 40 countries around the world. And their salaries flow directly into Kim’s treasury. The only ones who know exactly how the system works are the men who have helped the North Korean government carry through the program for years. A film team spent years researching these men and their secrets – from bankers and diplomats to the laborers and specialists who worked abroad and whose wages flowed into the regime’s coffers. Come and meet all the dictator’s men.

  1. It’s very similar to what used to be the Soviet Union. I’ve lived in the USSR and these images remind me of that time. There are some remnants of the USSR like «proposal or registration “ of your living address. You can’t move to another address without government permission.

  2. the sanctions are the cause of the starving of north korean people economy the US neoconservatives and south korean far right conservatives want them to starve to death even if they give up their nuclear arsenal or regime change , at the same time they need north korea to stay to keep the reason for staying in south korea forever and keeping the country divided eternally

  3. wait a minute…..office 39?….is this the HATE for Trump funded and fostered by global corporations because he threw out the TPP on day one (where they make secret trade deals)…were the Globalists going to use Labor from N.
