Friends Kaldr and Saga get to see each other only day day a year. On that day in the dead of winter, they each travel a great distance to share a pint at their favourite pub. Storytellers by trade, they conjure up tales and epics from their 365 days apart. Inspired by Norse tales, Kaldr and Saga search for stories of pride in the stories of the gods.
