Clip: Season 21 Episode 10 | 2m 18s Video has closed captioning.

In this excerpt from the documentary Leftover Women, Qiu Hua Mei, a lawyer in her 30s, wants to find a man who is well-educated, shares chores, and respects women. Is that too much to ask? Well the professional matchmaker she interviews with bluntly seems to think so--deeming Qiu "too old" and not beautiful enough to be picky. Will she be called a "leftover woman" if she doesn't settle?
