It's been ten years since the Black Plague ravaged the lands. A poor family sets out on a journey to find a better place to live. On a desolate mountain pass, the family is attacked by a pack of merciless killers. The only one to be spared is 19 year old Signe, who is taken hostage and brought back to camp. There she learns she is to face a fate far worse than death, and she realizes the only thing to do is to run away. But her escape does not go unnoticed, and now the chase is on. Written by

This film was actually more enjoyable with subtitles - it's interesting how many phrases sound identical to Scots. That aside, I've not been so absorbed in a film for a long time. I noticed an earlier review which mentioned that a rubber sole on a shoe was visible in one scene - my thoughts while watching the film were that the footwear seemed authentic and that the soles appeared to be wooden, and I think that sounds likely to be feasible, as wooden soles and clogs were around in Europe since before Roman times. The overall period feel of the film seemed faultless to me. The performances of all the actors were of a high order and wholly convincing. The script tells a simple yet powerful story - usually I tend to answer email and reply to messages in the middle of films these days (getting old, I guess) but not with this one. Excellent film.
