The plot of the movie revolves around an exiled Viking warrior who returns to his homeland to save his dethroned king and his wife and daughter from the evil clutches of their enemies.

The movie starts with a prologue in which a group of Vikings led by Helmut returns home to find their king murdered and his young daughter kidnapped. Helmut is exiled from his own land because he is considered a suspect in the crime. He wanders aimlessly for years, filled with guilt and remorse. That is until one day, he meets a band of travelers who are being attacked by bandits. Helmut saves them and befriends them. They tell him about a nearby kingdom where a king has been overthrown and his queen and daughter are being held captive.

Helmut sees this as his chance for redemption and sets off with his new friends to rescue the queen and princess. However, they soon discover that the task is not going to be easy as the evil ruler of the neighboring kingdom, named Krok, is determined to keep them as his prisoners. Krok sends his army after the group of travelers, who are now joined by the warrior's daughter, but they are able to fend them off thanks to Helmut's exceptional fighting skills.

The group soon reaches the kingdom where the queen and princess are being held. They find that the queen has been brainwashed by Krok and has no memory of her husband and daughter. Helmut tries to remind her of her past, but she still does not believe him. Meanwhile, Krok has found out about the group of travelers and sends his soldiers to capture them.

As the battle between Helmut's group and Krok's soldiers intensifies, Helmut has to use all of his skills and cunning to rescue the queen and princess. He also has to deal with the guilt and regret he feels for not being there to protect them when they were kidnapped years ago.
