Vikings

The world of the Vikings is brought to life through the journey of Ragnar Lothbrok (Travis Fimmel) the first Viking to emerge from Norse legend and onto the pages of history - a man on the edge of myth.

Our story begins in 8thcentury Scandinavia where Ragnar Lothbrok is a warrior and a farmer who dreams of finding riches by bucking the tradition of raiding to the east. Ragnar has been working in secret on a project that will turn the Viking world on its head. But first Ragnar must convince the leader of his community, the powerful Earl Haraldson (Gabriel Byrne) who is none too happy to share in the renown that this journey could bring to Ragnar if it's successful.
