Love Retreat TAPAC

In the near future, most women prefer to enjoy their own lives instead of marrying and having children - but this has put the nation in population crisis, so the government creates a law which forces women above a certain age to give birth...

What happens when 5 women are sent to 'Love Retreat' to find their partners?

This unusual story with a controversial theme is written by Yabing Liu and directed by Zhiming Xu and Zhaoxin Zhou.
