By day the beloved 50 year old Halla leads a local choir and applies to adopt a Ukrainian orphan while at night she becomes a bike-riding eco-warrior operating under her codename of “Mountain Woman” to sabotage Reykjavik’s power system and prevent the construction of a new aluminium smelter. This quirky and entertaining comedy drama delivers an important message about climate change.
