Clip: Season 21 Episode 12 | 2m 35s Video has closed captioning.

In this excerpt from One Child Nation, Brian Stuy, Utah-based co-founder of Research China and father to three adopted girls from China, explains how a "recruiting network" worked to find and bring children into orphanages, children that were later to be bought and sold--trafficked. Filmmaker Nanfu Wang then wonders about each baby's story, of separated twin siblings, many of them unknowingly.
