Vinland Saga plot

Thorfinn, a young boy, spent his childhood listening to great tales of men sailing to a land called Vinland. Vinland was fertile, serene, and calm, unlike the place Thorfinn was from. Thorfinn’s father constantly told him that he had no enemies and it wasn’t okay to hurt other people. However, this young boy’s perception slowly changes, and he realized how far his father was from the truth.

The Danes and England were constantly at war and tension was on the rise. The Vikings played the role of mercenaries and took sides in this war. The Vikings were happy to take advantage of this situation and take away the riches of the lands that they pillaged. Thorfinn’s goal is to kill Askeladd, who had killed his father.
