I’m On The Highway To Hell

This is what happens if you take on the local government in China. An elderly couple who refused to have their home in a block of flats demolished, because the compensation was too low, now have to contend with a massive traffic and noise nightmare. Thanks to a change in Chinese laws, local authorities can no longer oust people from their homes without their consent but they can sure make their lives are a living hell. This local goverment decided to build the motorway (which goes to the airport) around their property after they refused to budge.
