"Urban Tundra" is an observational documentary about homelessness and faith. A very big snowstorm named Monica hits Tallinn, Estonia in December 2010 and the film crew visits a soup kitchen opened for people in need. The film tries to observe the activities during Christmas holiday and document how people in need are coping with the ongoing storm.

/Dokumentaalfilm jälgib kodutute elu 2010. aasta jõulude ajal, kui Tallinna tabas võimas lumetorm “Monika”. /
