In the Middle of the ninth century one man rose to conquer all of Norway giving all the clans that did not submit a choice, death or exile. Thus, starting a feud that would last for over one hundred years. Through a tangled web involving greed, treachery and lechery one courageous man tries to chart an honorable course
The battle surged back and forth across the tangle of ships so that very few men were on the ship in which they arrived. Each advance, reverse and retreat cost men’s lives. They went down with cleaved legs, arms and heads, they fell disemboweled or with crushed skulls. Many dead and living men went into the fjord, to such an extent that the water around the tangled ships turned red with their blood. The smell of blood and sound of struggling men in the water brought another participant in this battle, sharks. Scarcely a man who went into the water came back out again.
