CORRECT LOGLINE:
When a young girl and her mother move to a small town to escape an abusive situation. Her friendship with a Norse god sparks a Valkyrie incarnate within her that could save her mother’s life and forge her own future.

KARA, a precocious tomboy (of 8) with a hidden life-altering reality and her mother, EMILY, a single (40s) mother and novelist, settle into the small-town life of Ravensong with ease, thanks in part to their new friend, ODIN, an eccentric, well-dressed, one-eyed gentleman (in his 50s) and full of mystery.

MIKE, the abusive father (in his 40s), arrives late one night, drunk and ready to fight. Emily is unable to stop him at the door. Threats, aggression, and tension escalate to such a level that Kara's fear releases uncontrollable weather conditions that only Odin can control.

Giving of one's eye in exchange for wisdom has helped Odin plan his destiny with Emily, but his spiritual connection to Kara is a pleasant surprise, even by godly standards. Wise beyond his years, Odin immediately identifies the transmigration of Kara as his most adored Valkyrie incarnate and as her ability surfaces in stressful situations he begins to share his skill and wisdom, helping her to crush her fear and transform into the warrior he knows her to be.

Odin invites the girls on a hiking trip to further solidify his relationship with Emily and to teach Kara how to control her inner-Valkyrie, but before they hit the trail, he gifts Kara an answer to one of her prayers.

During the hike, a situation puts Emily’s life in peril and forces Kara to face her fears and use her warrior will to help Odin save her mother.

Emily believes she has struck a deal with Mike to be out of their life for good, but when he stalks them both looking for an opportunity to kidnap Kara, he comes face-to-face with his daughter on a more godly level.

Odin embraces his new-found happiness with Emily and Kara and he gives to Kara the one thing he feels will help heal her of her fears. Justice.
