Within the dynamic and spectacular landscapes of Iceland lies a parallel magical world, seen only by those who possess the second sight. Fabled, beloved and revered, invisible elves live in communities scattered all across the countryside—and Ragga, a grandmother and environmentalist, is one such person who can see and communicate with her elven friends. For many, it is essential to maintain the harmony of the land by respecting the magical occupants who call Iceland's rocky cliffs, black sand beaches and rushing fjords their home. When the largest bulldozer in the country threatens to demolish a vital and historic lava field, Ragga and a team of activists step in to resist. Through the eyes of a spirited believer, we get to see the importance of connecting with nature and saving those whose voices we may not hear. Gabor Pertic
