The Mosuo Sisters

The Mosuo Sisters Movie Poster

This film is a tale of two sisters caught in the whirlwind of China's breakneck modernization. Juma and Latso, young women from one of the world's last remaining matriarchal societies, are thrust into the worldwide economic downturn when they lose their jobs in Beijing.

Left with few options, they return home to their remote village in the foothills of the Himalayas. Ultimately, though, it's the sisters' relationship with one another that hangs in the balance as they struggle to navigate the vast cultural and economic divides that define contemporary China.
