Brief Synopsis

Based on Norse/Scandanavian mythology, this movie traces the exploits of Lemminkainen as he woos the fair Anniky and battles the evil witch Loukhy. Loukhy kidnaps Anniky to compel her father to build for her a Sampo, a magical device that creates salt, grain, and gold. When Lemminkainen tries (and fails) to recover the Sampo, Loukhy steals the sun, plunging the world into frozen darkness.
