Halla is a fifty-year-old independent woman. But behind the scenes of a quiet routine, she leads a double life as a passionate environmental activist. Known to others only by her alias, “The Woman of the Mountain,” Halla secretly wages a one-woman-war on the local aluminum industry. As Halle’s actions grow bolder, from petty vandalism to outright industrial sabotage, she succeeds in pausing the negotiations between the Icelandic government and the corporation building a new aluminum smelter. But right 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 to deal the aluminum industry a crippling blow.

“With a masterful melding of the serious, the comic, the ridiculous and the musical, WOMAN AT WAR is joyful to experience.” – Kenneth Turan, LOS ANGELES TIMES

“Approaching weighty themes with a very light touch, Erlingsson’s WOMAN AT WAR is an environmental drama wrapped in whimsical comedy and tied with a bow of midlife soul-searching.” – Jeannette Catsoulis, NEW YORK TIMES

“Erlingsson’s genius lies in how it puts it all together with such witty intelligence, arranging beautifully shot picturesque episodes around a central figure who lives the ideals of the heroes she has hanging on her wall, Mahatma Gandhi and Nelson Mandela.” – Jay Weissberg, VARIETY

Lorain County Community College (LCCC) was named as an Aspen Institute Top 150 U.S. Community College – the nation’s signature recognition of high achievement and performance among America’s community colleges. This follows it being named a Leader College of Distinction by Achieving the Dream in 2019 and the top community college in the country for Excellence in Student Success by the American Association of Community Colleges (AACC) in 2018. According to a recent report on three-year success measures from the Ohio Department of Higher Education, LCCC's success rate of 60 percent is higher than the state average of 51 percent.
