It's 960 A.D., the waning years of the old Viking belief system. Christianity is slowly taking over, but there is still a large resistance to the new faith.
A stranger riding through the forest finds a woman bound and a hanging on a cross. He takes her down and brings her to a nearby village. He learns from an old trader that the lord in village, Earl Odisson, has expelled Gudrun and her Christian flock from the village and they are now at war.
The Stranger's natural instinct is to profit from this situation, but he soon learns that both sides are treacherous and makes a promise to the trader that neither shall prevail.
However, somewhere along the line he must put aside his greed and make a moral choice to become the man he is destined to be.
A thoroughly enjoyable film. Must be watched from beginning to end.
