To most of her acquaintances, Halla seems like an ordinary and amiable woman who works as a choir director. However, during her spare time, Halla’s strong affinity for environmental causes lead her to direct havoc towards targets who aren’t exactly eco-friendly. In the midst of her rebellion, Halla finds herself reevaluating her current circumstances after the unexpected arrival of a Ukraine orphan.

Through its uniquely-orchestrated score, political undertones, and Erlingsson’s knack for infusing high-stake situations with satire, Woman At War is a witty and socially-conscious film that transcends genres.
