This small housing and industrial area of Shangdong, Jinan China had largely remained unchanged for 100 years.

Until the local Government exercised the right to claim land from current owners for redevelopment.

When the order for redevelopment was given everyone in the area was told to leave.

The residence and business owners were not given any compensation for this relocation.

They were not given an exact date when the land was to be claimed and therefore demolished. So most left the area quickly to avoid problems.

Six months after first being told of the demolition, this is a documentary of those who have defied the order and have stayed.
