Woman at WarHalla declares a one-woman-war on the local aluminium industry. She is prepared to risk everything to protect the pristine Icelandic. Highlands she loves… Until an orphan unexpectedly enters her life.
Behind the facade of a quiet routine, fifty-year-old Halla leads a double life as a passionate environmental activist. Known only as “The Woman of the Mountain”, she secretly wages a one-woman war on the local aluminum industry. As she moves from petty vandalism to outright industrial sabotage, she succeeds in halting the negotiations between the government and the corporation threatening the pristine Icelandic mountains. But right as she starts planning for her biggest operation yet, everything changes; her application to adopt a child has finally been accepted. Preparing to abandon her role as an activist to fulfil her dream of becoming a mother, Halla decides to plot one final crippling blow to the aluminum industry.
