Sell Me I Am From North Korea" is inspired by the true stories of North Korean defectors. Sora's solo performance weaves together relatable young naïveté, the harsh realities of life inside a brutal regime, and the unforgiving struggle of life as an undocumented refugee in order to bring voice to a silenced people.
