Leftover Women

Show trailer
The fatal consequences of the one-child policy reveal themselves in a China where unmarried women are ostracised, but where three of them stubbornly continue to try their luck.

If you are not yet married as a Chinese woman at the age of 27, you are labelled as 'sheng nu' – a leftover woman. And then it is not easy to create a life for yourself in a country where there is great pressure from both the family and society to continue the lineage and the nation, and not to stand outside. The 34-year-old lawyer Qiu HuaMei has chosen her career, and 28-year-old Xu Min and 36-year-old Gai Qi are up against their own families in the race to find love before it's too late. But now that the fatal consequences of the one-child policy have become visible to everyone, things are set in motion with public dating festivals. The question is just whether marriage is always the path to happiness.
