Land of Wooden Gods (script) Poster
The Viking chieftain makes his stepbrother Holme a slave and puts out his newborn child to a certain death. Holme saves the child and flies with the child's mother, Ausi. It evolves into a lifelong struggle for both his freedom and Ausi's emancipation. To this violent Nordic world comes a missionary with the message that everyone is equally loved by God. The Viking's ASA religion excludes that slaves would be equal to free man. It leads to a religious struggle. Holme is also threatened by the missionary who distorts his wife's head with his talk of God's love. Holme is forced to fight for both his woman and their freedom and at the great Viking Blot everything is put on its tip. The Viking chieftain has never given up his rights to the slave couple, which forces to a final settlement.
