Witness a man’s poignant journey of revenge on the majestic Nordic landscape.
In the 9th century, the coming-of-age ceremony for Amleth, the young prince of a Scandinavian island, was taking place with the attendance of his father, King Aurvandill, who had just returned from a long journey. However, the ceremony is disrupted when the prince’s uncle Fjölnir murders Aurvandill and kidnaps Queen Gudrún. Vowing to avenge his father and rescue his mother, Amleth escapes the island alone on a boat. A few years later, Amleth had grown to become a berserk Viking warrior who rampaged across Eastern Europe. One day, he comes across a Slav seeress who reminds him of his fate and mission. He then finds out that Fjölnir currently owns a farm in Iceland.
