This movie tells of the tragic fact that a 13-year-old girl who has grown up happily in an ordinary family was suddenly abducted, and tells of parent's earnest entreaties that they get back their beloved daughter. We would like you to see that it is quite a detestable atrocity and has been unsolved still now since 1977. We hope you would lend a hand so that the parents could hear the voice of their daughter's "I'm home!".
"North Korea Kidnapped My Daughter"
On November 15, 1977, 13 year-old Megumi Yokota disappeared without a trace while on her way home from school.
Twenty years later a newspaper revealed she was abducted by North Korean operatives and was still in North Korea.
North Korea Kidnapped My Daughter is Sakie Yokota's memoir of the last 30 years without her daughter.
Her resounding faith is inspirational as is her unfaltering determination to repatriate Megumi.
Mrs. Yokota vividly recounts the horrifying panic when Megumi went missing and the entire ordeal of her daughter's absence. (from Amazon.com)
