Halla, a choir conductor, wants to disrupt the operations of a Rio Tinto aluminium plant in the highlands of Iceland. She repeatedly damages pylons and wires to cut their power supply. One day, a long-forgotten application to adopt an orphan child from Ukraine is approved. At the same time, the government ramps up police and propaganda efforts in order to catch and discredit her.
