Shadow of the Raven is the second film of the legendary Raven Trilogy (also known as the Viking Trilogy). It is essentially TRISTAN AND ISOLDE, Icelandic style. During the late 11th century, Iceland is gradually being converted to Christianity, but old ways die hard. Tratusi, a young Norseman, returns home to discover that his family is embroiled in a deadly feud…over the beached carcass of a whale. When the rival clan leader is killed, he is replaced by his daughter Isold. To assure that peace will reign in the region, Isold is promised in marriage to the son of the Bishop of Iceland - who, despite his position as official spokesperson of Christian values, is corrupt and power-hungry.
