Cannes Critic's Week Grand Jury Nominee 

Halla, an woman in her 50s, has had enough of the big corporates ruining the beautiful landscape of Iceland's highlands. She begins a one-woman campaign to take them down. Living a double life as a warm and friendly choir director in town, Halla has a secret side hobby of taking down heavy industry power lines with her bow and arrow. As she learns information about upcoming Chinese investment in Iceland, potentially expanding infrastructure eyesores, Halla turns eco-friendly freedom fighter just as she receives the outcome of her application to adopt a child from Ukraine. Can the 'Woman of the Mountain' have it all? 

Including a glorious musical chorus of Icelandic folk instrumentalists and Ukrainian singers that break the fourth wall in barnstorming fashion, Benedikt Erlingsson's sophomore film is a heartfelt, hilarious and strikingly unique musical tale. 

"Delightful… an intelligent feel-good film that knows how to tackle urgent global issues with humor as well as a satisfying sense of justice." – Variety
