The young blacksmith Thor dreams of greatness, honour and respect but his mother has other and more practical plans for him. legend has it that he is the son of Odin, the King of the Gods and the villagers believe that they live under Odin's godly protection. what no one knows is that Hel the Queen of the Underworld is brewing an evil plot that endangers both men and gods. By sheer accident or perhaps by fate the most powerful weapon in the world, the hummer crusher, ends up in the Thor's hands.
