[Credits] [Termine] [Trailer]

In this visual­ly impres­si­ve, emo­tio­nal­ly powerful dra­ma from Iceland, a woman sees red and rebels against a cor­rupt agri­cul­tu­ral coope­ra­ti­ve in her dis­trict. Inga has a hea­vi­ly indeb­ted milk farm. After the death of her hus­band, she sta­kes ever­y­thing on a con­fron­ta­ti­on with the source of her mise­ry: the coope­ra­ti­ve, which ruthl­ess­ly exploits its mono­po­li­stic posi­ti­on to the full and puts far­mers under mas­si­ve, Mafia-like pres­su­re. A strugg­le bet­ween David and Goliath beg­ins. Inga attempts to found her own coope­ra­ti­ve against the mas­si­ve resis­tance of the powerful bos­ses, well awa­re that in doing so she is jeo­par­di­sing her own existence.
