Trailer | Leftover Women
Leftover Women follows three successful Chinese women who, despite thriving careers, are still labeled sheng nu, a derogatory term in China to describe educated, professional women in their mid-20s and '30s who are not married. As they search for “Mr. Right,” they struggle to stay true to their ambitions, while dealing with pressure from families, friends, and governmental stigma.
- [Narrator] Dating is never easy,
but for many Chinese women their worth depends
on being married.
In the eyes of those who love them, they're not complete
unless they have a husband.
For these women being single in their mid 20s
can mean defying society and their family.
If choosing your own path meant risking everything,
what would you do?
