This is a film about the ideal life in an ideal country. We can see how much effort the North Korean people have to make to make this ideal world work. Every North Korean is ready to give his life for this world. We see a girl in an ideal school, the daughter of ideal parents, working at ideal factories, living in an ideal apartment in the center of the capital of North Korea. The girl is being prepared to enter the children’s union to be a part of the ideal society, living in the eternal rays of the sun, the symbol of the great leader of the people, Kim Il-sung.
