At a time when the Christian faith hardly reached the borders of Scandinavia, a mute man, a savage barbarian, was freed after many years of imprisonment. He knew neither his origin nor his destination. They called him One-eye.

In the manner of the ancient pagan gods, One-eye discovers his true nature.
