Norse myths come alive in this amusing and highly entertaining hour-long play. When Baldur, the god of nature, is killed, he has a chance to come back to life, but declines because he feels his life wasn't very important. And it's up to Siggy, a fast-talking coward, to change Baldur's mind! We see Baldur's life and all the heroic acts he's done. But instead of getting respect from everyone, all he earned was the wrath of Loki, the god of mischief. When Baldur is accidentally killed, his mother bargains with Death, that if all things on Earth will shed tears for Baldur, he can return to life. Soon even the rocks cry: everyone and everything except Baldur, himself. Enter Siggy. He shows Baldur what the world would be like if he had never lived. His parents would be slaves to the troll; his sweetheart would be unhappily married to Loki, and his brother Thor would be killed by a serpent. When Baldur starts to cry, he returns to Valhalla, the home of the gods, where everyone celebrates his homecoming, and the Valkyrie welcomes Siggy as a true hero.
