A funny, smart and thoroughly engaging story revolving around a woman’s solitary fight against the establishment in this politically charged drama comedy. From the outside Halla leads a quiet and normal life as a respected choir conductor. In her spare time however, our heroine is a fierce eco-warrior who has been waging a singular war against a local aluminium factory by causing power cuts on regular sabotage missions. –Heyuguys
