A vicious cycle of revenge amongst Icelandic farmers during the 10th century provides the basis for this dark drama. The trouble begins when a husband grows jealous after eavesdropping on two conversing women. He responds with a murder which results in a spiral of tragedy until the pacifistic Gisli is outcast and forced to live alone in the mountains with a bounty on his head. The reward is substantial, and so the young man must be careful.
