By encouraging the birth of boys rather than girls, an imbalance of the sexes has emerged. China now counts far more men than women. Millions of these men, now of marriageable age, are desperately seeking a wife - and they will do anything to try to find one, even if it means buying one abroad or even kidnapping a woman. Marjolaine Grappe and Christophe Barreyre tell us more in this documentary. The Chinese call them "Guang gun", "dead branches" which will never bear fruit. In short, men condemned to a life without a wife, without children, and without the hope of one day starting a family. In China, there are already millions of these bachelors in search of a soulmate and their ranks are swelling. Ten years ago, there was talk of the "curse of being born a girl". As a result of the one-child policy – in force until 2015 - millions of little girls were killed before they were born or just afterwards. Sometimes they were abandoned shortly after their birth. Most families preferred to give birth to a boy, so that he could carry on the family line. ►► Also watch our report: "China's second child flop" It turned out to be a demographic time bomb. Today, the “curse” has backfired on these boys, who are now men. According to forecasts from the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, one in five men will be unable to find a wife by 2020. China will have a surplus of 30 to 40 million men under the age of 19. That’s the equivalent of the entire population of young men in the United States. Trafficking of women In some regions, "single villages" have emerged. The few women who were there have left the area to look for a rich husband in town. So men who want a chance to get married have to move to other regions. Millions of young men flock to the south of the country and work day and night in the factories of the Pearl Delta, "the workshop of the world", while hoping to find a soulmate. But even here, women are in short supply. In desperation, some Chinese men prefer to run away or buy a woman abroad, often from Burma, Vietnam or Indonesia... Others give up. For some, anything goes, even if it means enlisting the help of traffickers and kidnapping a woman. We went to meet single men who are crushed by the mathematical impossibility of finding a spouse and prepared to do anything not to end up alone. They agreed to speak to us and to take us to the heart of this unlikely trafficking operation. A report by Marjolaine Grappe and Christophe Barreyre / Orientxpress Production.

That's what happens when you abort all the females.

I read a newspaper article about this over 20 yrs ago this was predicted would happen because of the one child policy. They were right on the money. Now the few women left can pick and choose. So the less desirable or just less wealthy men get left behind. How sad. This is what happens when women aren't valued or respected.

Male overpopulation is a big problem. China has traditionally preferred male children, the prohibition of more than one child did not help this situation. The have changed that to two children now. Still there are stories that males are preferred and females often killed at birth. It seems that not enough females helps the population problem. There are always two sides to everything, sometimes even more.

What a joke! They're only getting what they asked for! I understand Russia has an overabundance of girls. They need to travel to Russia for wives instead of getting dolls to f**k.

That's what they get for aborting all those baby girls which is a very stupid move. Now either they need to leave the country for foreign women, become gay or start adopting a lonely life like those Japanese hermits that doesn't leave their room.

whats even worse is that its not just china but ALL of asia from Japan at 80% male children not bc they dislike girls but bc they cant afford more then one kid thus theyre forced to pick. India where they kill their infant daughters bc they view them as costing them money while boys increase their wealth. in general i dont see this as a bad thing since asia would do well to decrease in population. however the crimes that come out of this are awful since throughout asia there is a incredible increase in slave brides and abuse that goes with it as they are sold over and over. to increase in rape, and violence in general bc of all the fighting. this is a HUGE issue bc these are societies that place their entire culture on whats best for their family and family is their everything. Thus a unmarried son makes them ashamed, bc marriage and kids are literally their primary objective after work, plus all of asia will have to deal with the decreased productivity as less kids are born every yr. since while 61 million kids are left at home while they go to work since they cannot bring their families with them due to chinas resident laws stating that if they move they have to pay for schooling and medical care so they leave their kids with their parents. however recent stats show over 210million ppl migrate back home for chinese new yrs every yr (worlds largest migration) since most only get back once per yr. thus these children are called the damaged generation due to all the issues of being raised without parents.

ud think theyd start having more girls now that their daughter would be able to marry a wealthy man and thus help her family out. plus their family in general would gain status through the marriage their daughter could ask that their second son could get her families name or the authorities could make it law as well as including provisions for her family as part of the wedding agreement.

ONLY woman (ie.Female)no matter how strong is and will be science can give birth to another human.
That playing cards idea was brilliant . I hope they find these women, at least they’re keeping the victims story out there. I’m happy that bachelor guy found a beautiful bride from Indonesia. I hope they are happy together. He looks much happier.

They showed the child living with grandparents because the parents worked in the city - there is another video on YT that claims there are 60 million children who were abandoned by their parents so they can work in the city. They try to visit their children once a year. Some are in institutions like orphanages. Many are with relatives. They claim it is screwing up a generation of people.

Gayisim is the answer for millions of single Chinese men who are lonely and need to have sex. they should experience the joy of anal and oral sex and they will forget about vagina and breast forever.

The Chinese knee-jerk reaction to overpopulation never took into consideration tradition. Their government has no problem in stealing our secrets but can't control internal affairs. I think the leaders need to shake their heads and see if they rattle.

How is a doll going to make a person less lonely. It doesn't work for children yes it gives them some comfort but a doll will never replace human interaction. Maybe if they weren't so obsessed with race there are plenty of other women of other races that are available. I guess you reap what you sow you know how many female babies were aborted, killed or given up for adoption. Humans continue to mess with nature and nature always fights back
