Katla: Plot for the series
The premise of Katla is based on the volcano in southern Iceland. The drama series shows a small village named ‘Vik’ based near the volcano, that faces a new threat which takes place one year after it erupted.
Most of the village evacuated with only a handful staying behind to ensure the community is provided for, but Vik is now a danger zone, which is only accessible if people cross the Markarfljót river.
As the ice surrounding the volcano starts to melt, old elements that were frozen in the ice in prehistoric ages start to emerge, which poses a threat to the people there.
