WOMAN AT WAR is an intelligent, feel-good film that knows how to tackle urgent global issues with humour as well as a satisfying sense of justice. Halla is a choirmaster who loves her job and has just been approved to adopt a child from a war-torn country. There is one hitch, however, she is an eco-terrorist. She has targeted the aluminum industry which has ravaged Iceland's rugged landscape. 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. The political satire along with traditional music in the film are delightful.
