Halla, a woman in her forties, declares war on the local aluminium industry to prevent it from disfiguring her country.

In a literal power struggle between capitalism vs environmentalism, director Benedikt Erlingsson’s lyrical drama combines the beauty of Iceland with the strength of a woman. The backdrop is modern-day Iceland where our unlikely protagonist and self-appointed soldier is set to take on the country’s aluminium industry. Halla (Halldóra Geirharðsdóttir) is an unsuspecting middle-aged woman who, when not moonlighting as a covert environmental activist, is a single, well-respected choir teacher.

A strong lead performance grounds the film’s fairy-tale quality in reality, as our heroine sets out to right the world’s wrongs with nothing more than a bow & arrow. This film’s impact will linger long after the closing credits roll. (Subtitles)
