Norway in the year 872. Sigrun (Esther Schweins) could be a happy woman. As husfreya (housewife) she presides over an impressive Viking household on the coast, she has lots of children, her husband Ulf (Luca Maric) commands his own ship. Yet Sigrun’s marriage is an unhappy one. The family is burdened by a dark secret: her husband stole her away from her home settlement during a raid when she was a young girl, killing her father and brother.
Sigrun has been secretly plotting her revenge ever since. When she hears news of a newly discovered island in the west, the time seems to have come at last: this is her chance to start a new life. Sigrun has enough time to prepare everything before her husband comes back from “viking”. She rallies together some followers and has a dragon-ship built, and waits for her opportunity. A spectacular escape to far-off shores begins.
