67-year-old farmer Xu Longgui and his 57-year-old wife Zhu Damei stand behind their home in Wuxi. The local government has told them their house will be torn down any day now. They were offered an apartment in the city, but like many villagers who lose their homes, they're required to pay for part of that apartment themselves. They can't afford the payment. Xu says he and his wife will be homeless once their home is demolished.
