Crossing the Line synopsis
In this documentary, American Pfc. James Dresnok, on duty in Korea in 1962, walks across the border to the north and becomes one of four western defectors. Used as a propaganda tool by the communist government, Dresnok's motives are never political or made entirely clear. During a court martial by the U.S., Dresnok does little to defend his actions and remains in North Korea. Marrying a Romanian woman, then later a Korean with whom he has children, Dresnok finds an odd peace in his new country.
