Description

Available to Watch May 15 at 11:00 AM - May 23 11:59 PM | Access to MSPIFF39 Redefined is geo-restricted to viewers in Minnesota and a MN billing address is required to purchase a ticket.

When her husband dies suddenly, Inga sacrifices the dairy farm they’ve had for years to fight against corporate corruption in this surprisingly funny and poignant drama.

When her husband Reynir is killed in a car accident, Inga’s grief is compounded when she discovers the farm is deep in debt. Faced with foreclosure, Inga decides to fight back, facing down creditors and corporate agents, and doing so with red-haired ferocity. Capturing Icelandic farm life beautifully, and filled with show-stopping scenes of conflict that will leave you stunned and laughing, The County is the very definition of a crowd-pleaser.
