The hit comedy that electrified audiences at the Cannes Film Festival and was awarded an astonishing ten Icelandic Oscars. The protagonist of the new film by Benedikt Erlingsson, the director of the wonderful Of Horses and Men, is a woman named Halla (a brilliant Halldóra Geirharðsdóttir). She lives in a small town where she works as a local choir conductor. No one suspects that the ever-smiling, charismatic Halla has a secret life after-hours. Hiding under the pseudonym “Mountain Woman”, she wages a one-woman war against a powerful company that threatens the natural environment of Iceland. In his second feature, Erlingsson returns to the topics touched upon in his debut. He examines the powerful bond between man and nature in this particularly difficult moment in time. In this story about rebellion, Halla proves that one woman is enough to turn a world ruled by men upside down.
