DRAMA | Black Comedy:
Halla, an Icelandic superwoman in a woolly jumper is 49, single and leads a full and satisfying life. She’s the popular conductor of an acapella choir, practices tai chi, swims laps, cycles everywhere – and unbeknownst to all bar a single accomplice, she is saving the countryside from industrial pollution, one exploded pylon at a time. Dubbed the ‘Mountain Woman’ in the media, demonised as an economic spoiler by government spinners, she’s feeling the pressure when a letter arrives reminding her that four years earlier she applied to adopt a Ukrainian orphan.
