After 30 years of the one child per family policy, Chinese parents who experience the death of their only son or daughter are becoming what is called ‘lost families’. Textile factory worker, Xiao Ai, is diagnosed with a terminal illness and does not have long to live. She is concerned that her parents will become a ‘lost family’ and have no one to take care of them after her death, so she decides to persuade them to have another child. This has become a poignant issue, as there are more than one million ‘lost families’ right now, and this number is likely to keep growing.
