Woman at War

Kona Fer I Strid

Somewhere in the icelandic mountains, a dedicated environmental activist has started a one-woman-war against the aluminium industry that threatens the landscape. But as she begins planning her most ambitious operation, she receives a letter that informs her that her application to adopt a child has been accepted... A surprising, quirky, and fascinating epic tale about the uneven battle between a woman who doesn’t conform to ready-made social roles and the different Goliaths she meets on the way, about the warm heart that is hidden underneath a frozen geography.
