Viking Kids

For his 12th birthday Torbjörn receives a very special present from his father: a round trip where he gets to see all the important Viking sites in Northern Europe. A long-cherished dream becomes true for him. His fascination for the Viking time Torbjörn got from his mother. She was an archeologist until – eight years ago – she suddenly disappeared without a trace from the excavation site in Avaldsnes.

From exactly this place Torbjörn decides to start off his journey. By means of a Viking history app on his new tablet computer he explores the excavation area on the trail of the Vikings. Then, he makes an exciting discovery: through his tablet screen, Torbjörn can look into the past. A Viking time scenery appears in front of his eyes.

Suddenly, he spots his mother in the middle of the crowd. She is wearing the clothes of the Vikings looking like one of them. Torbjörn realizes that his mother must somehow be caught in the past and that he needs to help her.

For his 12th birthday Torbjörn receives a very special present from his father: a round trip where he gets to see all the important Viking sites in Northern Europe. A long-cherished dream becomes true for him. His fascination for the Viking time Torbjörn got from his mother. She was an archeologist until – eight years ago – she suddenly disappeared without a trace from the excavation site in Avaldsnes.

From exactly this place, Torbjörn decides to start off his journey. By means of a Viking history app on his new tablet computer he explores the excavation area on the trail of the Vikings. Then, he makes an exciting discovery: through his tablet screen, Torbjörn can look into the past. A Viking time scenery appears in front of his eyes. When accidentally moving his arm in front of the camera, he sees that, on the tablet, it appears in Viking cloth. Apparently, he is able to somehow interact with the Viking past through a gateway in his tablet.

Suddenly, he spots his mother in the middle of the crowd. She is wearing the clothes of the Vikings looking like one of them. Torbjörn realizes that his mother must somehow be caught in the past and that he needs to help her.

Through his tablet he manages to get access to the Viking world and soon gets to know the girl Thora. She is the daughter of Sigrun who is responsible for the disappearing of Torbjörn’s mother Agnes. Eight years ago, in order to escape from being killed, she used witchcraft to switch worlds with Agnes. Unbeknown to the latter. The two kids decide to collaborate – each one in his time.
