Urban village, literally the village in city, has long become an indispensable part of the development of Shenzhen and also has provided us with a foothold. There are cobwebs of roads in the village, seemingly oppressive neon signs, noisy streets, narrow and crowded lanes, sharing living space ... the "urban village" has such a visual uniqueness compared with other cities of China, acting as a small but multi-functional community.

Under the situation of the soaring house prices and the increase in living costs, for a lot of graduates and workers who come from other cities, the village in city give them the shelter they want most and the "dream place" where they can pursue their dreams.

Since the Shenzhen's reform and opening up, we has experienced the forming and the disappearance of tremendous urban villages, where fighters' sweat and tears left and their stories buried.
