Description: When Vikings invade the village of Cadeby a small band of desperately unprepared people must defend it or lose everything.   A cross between Zulu, The Magnificent Seven, Assault on Prescinct Thirteen and Braveheart, set in the Post Roman British Dark Ages at the times of early Viking incursions along the coast.  A love story, an adventure story and a war film rolled into one. The tension builds throughout the piece as the Vikings close in on Cadeby, a real fifth century village populated mainly by the elderly and the infirm. They must defend the village from the Vikings to stop them from travelling south and wiping out all of the villages along the coast.   One man, Faelan, with the help of an unlikely and unprepared band of heroes stands in the way of the invaders. Can he persuade the villagers to defend themselves or will they just become another slaughtered village?  This works as a series of short films, a mini series, a full length series or a movie - this being the movie version.A story of tragedy, loss, love and what people will do when the odds are stacked against them.
