A Viking Saga: The Darkest Day

Synopsis: Inspired by true events. Cast into a violent and bloody world of murder, Hereward, a novice monk, must deliver the Holy Gospel of Lindisfarne - a book of great beauty and power - to the safety of the Iona monastery, while being pursued by a Viking death squad hell- bent on its capture. On his way to the monastery, he meets a fierce and skilled swordsman who answers his prayers and dedicates his life to protecting Hereward while he delivers the book. In the midst of their journey, they are confronted by Vikings ready to kill in order to get what they want, leaving Hereward and his protector at their mercy.

- And nor should you.

- He said:
God punishes all sinners.

He did, he did.

Do you believe the whole Angles

men sins? I do not.

Many have turned their back

on the Word.

These are dark times, boy.

The heathen destroyed the monastery,

slaughtered our brothers.

Were they all sinners?

Did they turn their back

on the Word?

It was the bloody work of men.

Not the punishment of God.

They will come. I promise you.

Where is this place?

The chapel of St. Alchmund.


Alchmund was the first pilgrim to

bring the Word to Northumbria.

He is our most glorious saint.

It is said that Alchmund threw

down Satan the great deceiver,

here in this holy place.

It is said...

When Satan saw the great work

of Alchmund,

his conversion of the

heathen Saxons of Northumbria,

he tempted Alchmund, as he's tempted

Christ in the wilderness,

but Alchmund's faith was strong.

He threw down Satan,

shaking the mountains.

The sea boiled, rivers ran red.

Alchmund was victorious

over the darkness of his time.

We should be victorious over the darkness

that threatens to cover our time.

And if we fail?

We can not fail, boy.

This book is the salvation of Angles.

It is our heart, our very soul.

Without these Gospels,

this island is slipping to darkness.

This old man that I am

must sleep a while.

It's going to be a long day tomorrow.

No seeing.

We must press on!

Our guides will find us.

They will find us!

God wills it.

- You should rest.

- We must press on!

Stop it.

You must rest...

I'll find you some food.

We must go!

We must go!

Someone is coming.

It's a soldier!

- He is armed.

- A Saxon? A North?

- Come on!

- No.

Do not fear me, priest.

I will protect the Gospels.

I Aethewulf of Wessex.

Your beacon was lead.

I have come to aid you.

You are send from the king?
