rated for 0 + years

Hrafn Gunnlaugsson's first Viking film, where he presents a new concept of the Viking era, destroying the stereotypical Hollywood image. Gest, an Irishman, witnessed as a child the murder of his parents and the taking of his sister as a slave by two Norwegian vikings. Twenty years later he follows their trail to Iceland. His sister now stands between two men: the one who once ravished her, now father of her beloved son, and her brother, who wants to rescue her and avenge their parents' death.
