An investigative film about the deprivation of women in China. The camera accompanies Commisar Shi at his dangerous mission of rescueing young women. They are kidnapped by unscrupulous “slave traders”, get abducted to be exploited in brothels or sold to men in remote villages. The film shows Commisar Shi in areas where no one ever has seen a TV crew, in areas where cruelty and lawlessness reign and kidnapped women are auctioneered like cattle on a market.
This enthralling documentation deals with a very depressing angle of the Chinese everyday life.Berliner Morgenpost
