After being abandoned by his parents and his first wife, Joseph Dresnok re-enlisted in the U.S. army and was sent to patrol the border between North and South Korea. Feeling betrayed and lonely, and facing a court martial for leaving his post to visit a prostitute, Dresnok went AWOL and walked straight across the border into the North Korean mine fields. He was captured by the North Korean army, recruited by the Communist government and transformed into the antagonist star of the North Korean propaganda machine, typecast forever as the evil American. In 2004, British documentary filmmaker Daniel Gordon finally got unrestricted access Dresnok and went to Pyongyang to interview the only American left living in North Korea.
