Halla (Halldóra Geirharðsdóttir), a woman in her forties, declares war on the local aluminum industry to prevent it from disfiguring her country. She risks all she has to protect the highlands of Iceland-but the situation could change with the unexpected arrival of a small orphan in her life.

Casting performers with pitch-perfect comic timing, writer/director Benedikt Erlingsson (OF HORSES AND MEN) also makes audacious use of an Icelandic oompah band and a Ukrainian vocal trio to add levity and commentary on the action.
