In a fit of rage over the loss of his family, Loki murders Odin's favorite son Balder. As punishment, he is bound to a tree on Earth with the keys to his children's prisons dangling just out of reach.
There he will stay hidden from the eyes of mankind until the trees lose their memory of Balder...
500 years later.
Henrick, a Norweigan immigrant, finds the mysterious artifacts hanging in a tree on their property. He gives them as gifts to his three grandchildren, unaware that they are the very keys to Ragnarok and that Loki will stop at nothing to retrieve them.
