A documentary about the great battle of city planners in New York in the 1960s. In one corner stood Robert Moses, the city planner who wanted to demolish half of New York to pave the way for the concrete. In the other corner stood Jane Jacobs, the popular hero who did her utmost to defend the parks, buildings and, ultimately, the living unity.

Citizen Jane - Battle for the City follows her struggle against the urban planning of modernism, adapted to everything but man.
