Escape From Mogadishu

This movie is from our archive and is not currently screening.

In the late 1980s, at the height of the Cold War, a diplomatic skirmish between North and South Korea breaks out on the African continent over the latter's campaign to join the United Nations.

In 1991, three years after the opening of a South Korean embassy, Somalia's capital Mogadishu is engulfed in civil war, leaving the South Korean diplomats trapped. The North Korean embassy, meanwhile, faces the same situation.

The diplomats of these two nations, who in the outside world are sworn enemies, become targets for the hails of bullets fired by both Somali government forces and the rebels in the chaos of civil war. Risking their lives, they embark on a joint escape.
