Halla, a woman in her forties, declares war on the local aluminium industry to prevent it from disfiguring her country. She risks all she has to protect the highlands of Iceland – but the situation could change with the unexpected arrival of a small orphan in her life.
“Warmth, wit and wisdom that transcend national and cultural boundaries, making this a truly universal treat.” – Mark Kermode, The Guardian
“There can be no doubt that Halla is one of the year’s most inspirational heroes.” – Nikki Baughan, Sight & Sound
