811 AD, a family, isolated in their home, deep in the woods a few days travel from Birka. They are poor. The hunting and fishing has been bad for some time, and the father, Joar, takes the desperate measure of going on a Viking raid. Joar does not return for a long time, and the family starts to fear he never will. Runa, the oldest daughter, takes over her father's chores in his absence. She misses him dearly and nourishes a tender hope that he, once again, will return to them. But in her heart somehow she knows the suffering of the family has just begun. There is something in the air, something in the water, the wind and in the soil. Runa is becoming aware of something vile, something dangerous out in the forest. One day when she is out hunting she finds a bleeding man, a warrior, almost unconscious. She brings him inside and the family tends to his wounds. As he heals, she realizes he is sent to protect the family from an approaching evil. And he brings news of her father.

The story takes place in 810 and Christianity was very rare in the north. The use of Thor's hammer as a pendant is used after the the north was Christianized around year 1100 and is believed to have been used by believers of asatru to show their beliefs. Similar to how many Christian's use the cross today. See more »

User Reviews

Boring and disorganized
26 January 2020 | by arici1607See all my reviews

I never imagined he could reach such a tall level of boring. Good background music, it's unfortunately totally without timing. Very poor movie lines. Poor script. In all, very weak. Without an educational touch, without spirit, without any imagination. A kid from elementary school could have written a better script.
