[edit] Information

Ten years after the powerful film The Dying Rooms, about the neglect of abandoned babies in Chinese orphanages, Dispatches returns to a very different China where the infamous 'One Child' policy has had the horrific side effect of a boom in stolen children.

It is estimated that 70,000 children are kidnapped there every year and traded on the black market.

Featuring extraordinary access to those directly involved including: devastated parents desperately searching for their stolen son; a man who brokers the deals and has sold his own offspring and prospective parents grappling with giving up their soon-to-be-born daughter.

Beautiful, haunting and deeply tragic, this film takes us into the heart of modern China - a place where girl babies are being sold for as little as £200.

Detectives specialise in finding kidnapped children and child traffickers are so relaxed about the trade they ply, they allow the film-makers to record them buying and selling tiny human lives.

This film provides an intimate portrait of the crisis this stringent government policy has created among China's poorest people.
