    Yang Yong-Hi's father was the leader of a pro-North Korean movement in Japan. In the 1970's her father made the fateful decision to send his three sons to live in North Korea, while his only daughter Yang Yong-Hi remained in Japan with her parents. As the economic situation in North Korea deteriorated, her brothers became more reliant on the care packages sent by their parents. The doumentary ""Dear Pyongyang"" follows Yang's visits to North Korea to visit her brothers as well as conversations with her father over his past actions. Directed by Yang Yong-Hi (2006) 107 min."
