    • Synopsis
    • The puzzling murder of Kim Jong Un’s brother in an Malaysian airport sparks a captivating investigation. At the center of the story, two women are on trial. Who are they? Fierce assassins or pawns in a twisted game? The story goes far beyond the headlines, probing further into each woman’s upbringing, one in rural Indonesia and one in Vietnam. ASSASSINS questions every angle of this case, from human trafficking to high-level political espionage to the inner dynamics of the North Korean dynasty.
