Halla is an independent fifty-year-old woman who lives according to an outwardly quiet routine—but she leads a double life as a passionate environmental activist known as “The Woman of the Mountain.”

From her small home in rural Iceland, Halla secretly wages a one-woman-war on the local aluminum industry. As her actions grow bolder, she succeeds in stalling the construction a new aluminum smelter. But just as she begins planning her biggest and boldest operation yet, she receives an unexpected letter that changes everything: her application to adopt a child has finally been accepted and there is a little girl waiting for her in Ukraine. As Halla prepares to abandon her role as saboteur and savior of the Highlands to fulfill her dream of becoming a mother, she decides to plot one final attack.
