Valhalla Rising

In the Scottish Highlands, a mute one-eyed slave is held captive by a Norwegian chieftain and forced to fight others to the death, treated like and animal. While being transported to another location One-Eye cuts himself loose and escapes with a young boy where he meets a group of Christian Norsemen who are persecuting heathens of Scotland. He travels with the boy and Christians over seas destined for the Holy Land to reclaim and create the new Jerusalem, however when they run ashore after a near-death trip, they find themselves in a foreign land, hunted yet alone, unable to return home, slowly driving each member more and more insane.
