Director Hrafn Gunnlaugsson's beloved first Viking film that has conquered the world. A young boy is spared when a Viking takes pity on him instead of killing him. Iceland 20 years later: The boy returns to take his revenge on the killers, the Norwegian foster brothers; Thord and Eirik, by cunning and hidden weapons.

Hrafn Gunnlaugsson's first Viking film, where he presents a new concept of the Viking era, destroying the stereotype Hollywood image. Set in the middle Ages, the film tells the story of the revenge of Gestur, an Irishman who as a child witnessed the murder of his parents by two Norwegian Vikings, the foster-brothers Thór and Erik, and the taking of his sister as a slave. Gest follows their trail to Iceland and incites their mutual distrust and hatred. His sister stands between two men: the one who once ravished her, the father of her beloved son, and her brother, whom she has also learned to love, and who now wants to rescue her and to avenge their parents' death.
