Kidnapped Wives

Kidnapped Wives Economic liberalisation in China has brought an ancient and sinister trade back to life - the kidnapping of women for sale as wives for lonely men. With remarkable access on an issue still classified by the government as 'sensitive', Martin Adler follows a private detective, Zhu Wenguang - one of China's new breed of entrepreneurs - on the trail of his wives and daughters who've been abducted and sold. His investigation takes us thousands of miles to remote Inner Mongolia - only to find that, despite a government campaign to stamp out the trade, the local police refuse to rescue an abducted woman. A remarkable and beautiful film about an ancient practice abolished by communists, that's now coming back to haunt new China.
