China’s One Child Policy, the extreme population control measure that made it illegal for couples to have more than one child, may have ended, but the process of dealing with the trauma of its brutal enforcement is only just beginning.
From award-winning documentarian Nanfu Wang and Jialing Zhang, the sweeping “One Child Nation” explores the ripple effect of this devastating social experiment, uncovering one shocking human rights violation after another – from abandoned newborns, to forced sterilizations and abortions, and government abductions.
