Escape from Mogadishu

Mogadishu, 1990. Diplomats in the South Korean embassy are engaged in a charm offensive, trying to win the support of the Somali government for Korea’s bid for UN membership. However, the far more experienced North Korean embassy thwarts them at every turn. Suddenly, citizens’ protests against the corrupt Somali government turn violent, and soon a rebel army is battling government troops in the capital. Based on a true story, Ryoo Seung-wan’s gripping film creates large-scale spectacle whilst also functioning as a moving drama.
