Is a town planned for cars or people? This question seems to become more acute every day. One such battlefield is Estonia: Tallinn Main Street project but similar fights are going on in almost every town. In the documentary film we try to explore how difficult it is to carry out a bigger vision that would save the town space.

Maria Uppin (maiden name Kivirand) was born 1986 in Tallinn Estonia. During high school she started to study music and theatre and from there she got inspiration to study filmmaking. In 2005 she went to Spain to study language and culture. In 2006 she came back to Estonia to study film and media. She graduated Baltic Film and Media School Bachelors degree in Audio-visual Media and Masters in Documentary and Television course (cum laude).
