品學兼優的Yongju來自北韓的傑出家庭;Jangmi從小就靠著走私商品養大自己;Danny則是一個韓裔美國人,古怪及早熟的個性使他在加州的學校格格不入。三個來自不同背景的青年各自逃家,在一個靠近北韓邊界的中國城相遇。為了生存及面對來自各方的威脅,一群背景特殊的人共組了大家庭互相照顧,有北韓政府的告密者、小偷、綁匪及傳教者等。Yongju、Jangmi及Danny又將如何在龍蛇混雜的中國城平安度過?作者Krys Lee以精湛的文筆成功打造全世界最神秘及危險的國家,談討人類即使在最危險的環境下依然保有最純真及善良的天性。

Yongju is an accomplished student from one of North Korea's most prominent families. Jangmi, on the other hand, has had to fend for herself since childhood, most recently by smuggling goods across the border.families. Danny is a Chinese-American teenager of Korean descent whose parents left China when he was nine; his quirks and precocious intelligence have long marked him as an outcast among his peers, and he yearns for the China of his youth.

These three disparate lives converge when each of them travels to the region where China borders North Korea--Danny to visit his mother, who is working as a missionary there; Yongju to escape persecution after his father is killed at the hands of the Dear Leader himself; and Jangmi to protect her unborn child.

As they struggle to survive in a place where danger seems to close in on all sides, in the form of government informants, husbands, thieves, abductors, and even missionaries, they come to form a kind of adopted family.

The novel transports the reader to one of the most complex and threatening environments in the world, and explores how humanity persists even in the most dire of circumstances.
