There were originally 6 sisters but due to a lack of funds they were only able to sent 3.

Unfortunately they were eliminated in the first round but their story has inspired a movie.

The movie will tell the story of the 3 sisters' journey to the 'big' city Chongqing, Yunnan, where the film will be made.
