In a rural area in North Korea, little Jong-Soo dreams of visiting Pyongyang and meeting Kim Jong-Il. But when his dreams of adventure are dashed, he finds himself disheartened, wandering the woods. There, under a tree, he discovers a balloon carrying a toy robot – a Christmas gift from children in South Korea. Soon, the robot has made Jong-Soo so popular that other children in town begin offering him gifts for just a few short moments of playtime with the toy. But just as Jong-Soo realizes what the robot can do for him and his family, he discovers that another group of children in his town will do anything to make the robot their own.
