Synopsis

Although significant resources have been used to prevent erosion and desertification in Iceland, the source of the problem has yet to be tackled; agricultural methods long obsolete, i.e. free range sheep. Actress Herdís Þorvaldsdóttir has tried fighting the free range for over 30 years. She produced this documentary herself using every possible means, even selling a painting by famous painter Gunnlaugur Scheving, Skammdegisnótt (Midwinter night), that she received as a wedding gift 50 years ago from her late husband, Gunnlaugur Þórðarson.
