Environmental activism, political satire and surreal Scandi-comedy meet in this quirky and hugely enjoyable Icelandic drama. A mysterious eco terrorist stalks the mountainous landscape, pulling down electricity pylons and sabotaging pollution producing factories. Few would believe that mild mannered choir conductor and pillar of the community Halla is responsible. Everything changes for Halla when a long standing adoption request is suddenly approved. Can she still maintain her environmental crusade whilst bringing up a child?
