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.
