    In 2008, local authorities evict 2,000 villagers from Guanzhou, a river island in Southern China to make way for new urban planning projects - a fate shared by five billion rural citizens of China yearly. In spite of the demolition of their houses and police pressure, a handful of inhabitants return to the island. For seven years, I have filmed their battle to save their ancestral land, from the ruins of the village where nature is slowly reasserting itself, to the worksites of the mega city which inexorably advances towards them.
