Beijing social worker Hu Yanping and her friend nurse Liu Xian spend all their evenings and weekends running an amateur dating agency. The agency flourishes in a social climate where China’s new career women discover that their new found wealth and independence is threatening to many men, making it harder to find husbands. In sharp contrast to her dating service, social worker Hu Yanping spends her working day as a lawyer dealing with women victims of marital breakdown and domestic violence.
