Leftover Women

Leftover Women

The film follows three successful Chinese women who despite their thriving careers still live with the derogatory label: Leftover Women – a term used in China to describe educated, professional women in their mid-20s who are not married.
With 30 million more men than women, the social stability of China is under threat, and single women are perceived as the solution to the problem. As they search for “Mr. Right”, they struggle to stay true to their personal and professional ambitions, while dealing with pressure from their families, friends, and a government that has launched a campaign to stigmatize unwed women.
