Woodmouse: Life on the Run

We get to know two mice calles Oscar and Helga. One fine day on a farm in Southern Iceland, they meet in a mousetrap. The emphasis of the film is on its strong story line and a fictional structure that carries us through a year in the life of two mice. It is informative, yet a love story in the best tradition of the movies, involving rivalry, danger and true romance.
