Halla's long-time dream was to have a child. She had signed up for adoption so long ago, she almost forgot about it. Out of the blue, she gets approved to adopt a baby from war-torn Ukraine. What a new, beautiful life she could give this baby! A beautiful world - that Halla is passionate about protecting. You see, there's another side to Halla. She is an eco-terrorist! Taking down the evil Aluminum plant that threatens the Icelandic highlands, one pylon, and wire at a time, is her life's mission now. She faces dangers, and police and government propaganda efforts to discredit her. How does being a mother fit in with this? Should she choose the present, herself an actual baby she could save, or should she dedicate herself to the crusade to protect the environment for the future generations? Comedy, musical, political satire, thriller, drama, this film transcends many genres, and brings important questions to the fore. - Shwetha VR
