SYNOPSIS: Halla (Halldóra Geirharðsdóttir) is a beloved choir director by day, but in her free time she’s the “Mountain Woman,” an eco warrior who—with almost a Tom Cruise level of actioneering—employs guerrilla tactics to halt plans for a new aluminum smelter. And this unassuming middle-aged woman has been pretty effective at thwarting efforts to destroy her beautiful homeland, so much so that authorities are closing in, just as it looks like her long wait to adopt a Ukrainian child has come to end.
