A Norse epic set in the early 10th century following in the footsteps of a Viking prince who will do anything to avenge the murder of his father.

Years later, Amleth (Alexander Skarsgard) discovers that his murderous uncle has lost his kingdom and become a feudal lord. Amleth pretends to be a slave in order to get revenge, but he must decide what to do with his mother (Nicole Kidman) and his young half-brother.
