Plot – Year 1000 is approaching in Baghdad and Ahmed Ibn Fahdlan has a high rank social position, but the privileges end when his forbidden relationship is discovered. As a punishment, he is sent as ambassador to a distant land. During the travel with his counselor and servant Melchisidek, their caravan bumps into a group of Viking warriors. They try to make friendship, but Ahmed considers those Vikings boorish and their stories about mysterious and terrifying creatures are not worth their time. An old fortune-teller intervenes telling Ahmed that thirteen warriors will have to defeat a terrible enemy which pursues Viking people. Moreover, the last one of them must be a foreigner of a different race.
