The Mosuo Sisters

Season 7 Episode 7 | 53m 47s

Two spirited daughters from China's last remaining matrilineal ethnic minority are thrust into the worldwide economic downturn when they lose the only jobs they've ever known. Left with few options, Jua Ma and La Tsuo leave Beijing for home, a remote village in the foothills of the Himalayas, where the Mosuo people uphold the provocative tradition that marriage is an attack on the family.
