The preference for sons and the one-child policy have dramatically skewed the sex ratio in China, creating a shortage of women. In recent years, Cambodian women are seen as ideal brides for single Chinese men longing to have a family. This story follows Cambodian woman Buntha and documents her life in China since October 2014 when decided to leave her home in rural Cambodia in 2013 for China and marry a Chinese man.
