Bene­dikt Erlings­son has set his poli­ti­cal­ly sharp-tongued come­dy against the breath-taking back­drop of the Ice­lan­dic land­s­cape.
Hal­la is 50 and an inde­pen­dent woman. But the faca­de of her seda­te rou­ti­ne hides a second life as a pas­sio­na­te envi­ron­men­tal cam­pai­gner. Known as „The Woman of the Moun­tain”, she con­duc­ts a secret one-woman war against the local alu­mi­ni­um indus­try. With methods ran­ging from van­da­lism to indus­tri­al sabo­ta­ge, she mana­ges to stop nego­tia­ti­ons bet­ween the Ice­lan­dic government and an inter­na­tio­nal inves­tor. And, when her app­li­ca­ti­on to adopt a child is final­ly accep­ted, she plans her last, most dar­ing ope­ra­ti­on.
