Millions of residents of central Shanghai have been resettled in far off districts as part of a sweeping plan to remake their city. Those who resist eviction find themselves with few legal options, and too little compensation. This is the story of a neighborhood on Fengyang Road marked for demolition, and what happened to one man who fought to stay.
