THÓR is a strong and perhaps a bit too powerful blacksmith in the world of men. Being the son of Odin, the King of the Gods but living with his hard-working single mother, he comes into the possession of the magical hammer Mjolnir. THÓR challenges Thrym, the King of the Giants to a duel in hope to save his friends from captivity. After a humiliating defeat, THÓR barely escapes with the aid of Edda, his human friend. When Mjolnir is stolen by Hel, the evil Queen of the Underworld, THÓR sets out to get Mjolnir back. Meanwhile Hel’s monstrous army of Giants is on the march towards the City of the Gods, bent on destruction. THÓR is faced with the almost impossible choice; to save his friends or his father’s kingdom.
