In a post-war action thriller where information is man’s greatest weapon, we follow two insurgent smugglers through the grey area of good and evil. They risk their lives for the oppressed and fight for humanity. Will they prevail? Through intense action sequences, exciting plot twists, and grounding personal relationships, CARGO shows us that humanity not only exists in oppressed and censored worlds, but that it is also something worth fighting and even dying for.
As our film is inspired by true events of real heroes, we share with you this quote:
“Right now, perhaps 30% of the population in North Korea KNOWS about the outside world. If you reach 50%, that’s enough people to start making demands, to start making changes. And if that enlightened audience reaches 80%? Or 90%? Then there’s no way the North Korean government, in its current form, could continue to exist.”
