An ostensibly quiet fiftysomething woman leads a secret life as an eco-warrior in Benedikt Erlingsson’s witty and eccentric comedy drama. Halla appears to lead a routine life, but nobody in her community suspects her of being “The Woman of the Mountain” - a notorious character who wages war on the local aluminium industry. As the stakes get higher, Halla faces another challenge - to care for the daughter she has been cleared to adopt.

One of THE highlights of the festival, don't miss this smart, wry comedy which will leave you cheering.
