A real-life undercover thriller about two ordinary men who embark on an outrageously dangerous ten-year mission to penetrate the world’s most secretive and brutal dictatorship: North Korea.

This series tells the story of ‘the Mole’, a family man from Denmark turned secret agent, and 'Mr James', a former jet-set cocaine pusher posing as a shady billionaire businessman. Together with director Mads Brügger they carry out a private undercover investigation, trying to find hard evidence to prove how North Korea is busting UN sanctions.

Incredibly, these two unlikely characters gain access to a group of international criminals working together to produce and distribute drugs and weapons for dubious clients. The Mole, Mr James and the film-makers use hidden cameras and microphones to secretly record their meetings. Contracts are signed, deals are cut and soon the team become involved in a plan to build a secret, underground weapons and drugs factory somewhere in Africa. But how far can they go without blowing their cover?
