Today, 150 million women are missing in Asia. Zoning in on personal stories from South Korea, China, India and Vietnam, the film explores the regional and global consequences of this dramatic gender imbalance. With previously unseen archive material, the film also looks back at the years after the Second World War and examines the dubious role of international organizations and their influence on worldwide family planning. A revelatory documentary that weaves together elements of politics, economics and medicine, showing women – both then and now – as the plaything of political and criminal interest groups.
