A woman dressed as Wonder Woman walks uninterruptedly through the inhospitable Icelandic landscape. We don’t know exactly who she is or what she does, but on this journey we witness the undoing of a figure we know from fiction, a figure with superpowers that in this scenario have no meaning. It’s a journey of erasure in which other figures emerge and transmutations become the driving force behind the action.
