Pebbles at Your Door

"If we lived in Paradise, we would no longer need hope." Harmonia lives a happy life in North Korea, but her reality cracks as she learns the truths she has never wanted to know. In the end, she faces a choice of living in a broken paradise of lies and deception or treading the unknown, lonely path of the real world outside. Nothing is free, and the struggle to become a whole human being is inhuman. 'Pebbles at Your Door' is a film about a woman from the North Korean elite, who faces the reality of her once beloved childhood paradise and the impossible task of healing a life that has been torn from birth.

Pebbles at Your Door was selected for the Short Film Competition at the Berlinale 2015. Vibeke Bryld’s Bedtime Stories from the Axis of Evil (2011) also focuses on North Korea.
