A real-life undercover thriller about two non-agents who embark on an outrageously dangerous 10-year mission to penetrate the world’s most secretive and brutal dictatorship: North Korea.. This film tells the story of ”The Mole”, an ordinary family man from Denmark turned secret agent, and 'Mr. James', a former jet-set cocaine pusher posing as a Scandinavian billionaire. Together with director Mads Brügger, they attempt to find a smoking gun to prove how North Korea is busting UN sanctions. Incredibly, these two unlikely characters gain access to the heart of an international criminal network that produces and distributes drugs and weapons for dubious clients. The Mole and Mr. James use hidden cameras and microphones to secretly record their meetings. Contracts are signed, deals are cut and soon the team become involved in a plan to build a secret, underground weapon and drug factory somewhere in Africa. But how far can they go without blowing their cover?
