People make cities, cities make people. Four stories from Brno, Bratislava, Budapest and Krakow discuss the factors which affect the changes in town’s appearance and have a major impact on lives of residents.

Most of the world’s population lives in the cities and their number is still growing. There are sudden changes, which are resulting in pressures between town halls, developers, residents, entrepreneurs and non-profit organizations. Who determines how the city shall look and who, where and how gets to live in it? Documentary film „Who Owns the City” follows 4 characters that personify the change.
