Halla is a fifty-year-old independent woman. However, behind the scenes of a quiet routine, she leads a double life as a passionate environmental activist. Known to others only by her alias "The Woman of the Mountain," Halla secretly wages a one-woman-war on the local aluminium industry. As Halla's actions grow bolder, from petty vandalism to outright industrial sabotage, she succeeds in pausing the negotiations between the Icelandic government and the corporation building a new aluminium smelter. Just as she begins planning her biggest and boldest operation yet, she receives an unexpected letter that changes everything. Her application to adopt a child has finally been accepted and there is a little girl waiting for her in Ukraine. As Halla prepares to abandon her role as saboteur and saviour of the Highlands to fulfill her dream of becoming a mother, she decides to plot one final attack to deal the aluminium industry a crippling blow.


 

Reviews

Woman at War exudes a puckish sense of humour even as it deals with dire matters.” – Ty Burr, Boston Globe.

“A joyous and warm-hearted comedy drama taking on essential contemporary issues.” Robert W. Monk, Filmink

Woman at War is a strikingly beautiful story of one woman's desire to do good. Thanks to the unique artistic flourishes of Erlingsson and the powerhouse dual performances of Geirharðsdóttir, it will echo in the senses long after it is over.”- Lee Jutton, Film Inquiry
