This is a foreign language film with English subtitles.
Hilarious, surprising and poignant, Woman at War is the story of middle-aged Halla, part-time choir mistress and part-time guerrilla climate change activist.
But while taking out energy pylons, she receives the call that she is eligible to adopt a longed-for child. Halla must make a choice: fight for the future of all humanity or take up the cause of an unwanted child?
While the off-kilter comedy will make you laugh, Woman at War will leave you with deeper questions about what our individual responsibility is to our planet.
