Insularia Islas en Red


At fifty years old, Halla, a singing teacher, declares war on the local aluminium industry, which is polluting her country. To do so, she takes all kinds of risks in order to protect the environment in Iceland. But her situation could change with the unexpected arrival of a letter that finally gives the green light to her adoption procedures for a girl.
