Enter the one-child policy, which despite its horrors, resulted in China's first generations of urban only-daughters - girls who were raised without brothers and pushed to study, achieve, and succeed as if they were sons.

Unprecedentedly well-educated and goal-oriented, they struggle to find partners.
