Synopsis by Bhob Stewart
In this Danish action-adventure, Scottish forests and marshes substitute for Scandinavia. Off to war, a 13th-century king leaves his son, Valdemar, at bishop Eskil's castle, where Valdemar becomes friends with Aske. Valdemar and Aske learn of Eskil's plans to overthrow the throne. They escape to warn the king, but they arrive too late. Eskil captures the king and plans to hang Valdemar unless the king steps down from his throne. Shown at the 1997 Haugesund Film Festival.
