Synopsis

Despite their thriving careers, Qiu Hua Mei, Xu Min and Gai Qi still live with the derogatory label sheng nu, 'leftover women’. The phrase is used across China for educated, professional women over the age of 27 who have failed to find a husband. As each woman goes in search of “Mr. Right,” they have to struggle to stay true to their personal and professional ambitions, all the while burdened by pressures from their families, friends, and even a government.
