Plot Summary, Synopsis, Review: IMDb - - - - - - - «...A band of Norsemen come to the new world for trade, bringing with theman Irish slave and his sister. The Irishman know how to find the sun ona cloudy day through the use of a crystal (the "Magic Stone") and thusis valuable. Dissension and hot blood among the Norsemen leads toconflict with the natives they had hoped to trade with, and theIrishman escapes and is adopted by the native tribe. Some elements of the story are taken from Icelandic saga and otherhistorical records, most notable an episode when the Norsemen are beingattacked by the natives and are rallied by one of their women slappinga sword on her chest. The costumes and production design are about ashistorically accurate as one could possibly expect (at least there areno horned helmets). The tone of the entire film is quiet, gentle, and family friendly.There is no sex or nudity, and the violence is acceptable for thoseconcerned about small children who may be watching it. The leadingactors are all young and appealing. If you are studying the history ofthe Vikings and their exploration of the New World or want to showsomething of what it might have been like, this is not a bad movie towatch. ...».
