Brief Explanation

The film opens with a glimpse into the immense pressure Chinese women face regarding marriage. It then proceeds to explain “Sheng Nu”, a term designed by the government to label and stigmatize unmarried women over the age of 27. At the same time, four independent Chinese women are introduced, sharing their own personal views on the subject. Their parents are shown too, and they explain that matchmaking was an integral part of how marriage worked in their days. This leads to an examination of the marriage market, a place where parents go to match their sons and daughters using personal ads. The daughters agree to attend the market with their parents, but only to deliver their own personal messages – that they refused to marry just for the sake of it. The film ends with the parents understanding their daughters’ viewpoint and the first steps towards reconciliation.
