Director Nanfu Wang is a member of the One Child Generation in China. After becoming a mother herself, she uncovers the untold history of China's one-child policy and the generations of parents and children forever shaped by this social experiment. Traumatic recollections from her own family’s recent past unleash a dizzying number of revelations from journalists, officials, parents, and activists.

This brilliant combination of cultural reporting and interpersonal reckoning manages to encapsulate decades of under-reported events within a palatable narrative accessible to viewers with no prior understanding of the policy's history.

Densely informative yet always grounded in deep personal investment and clear-eyed compassion
