    The film is set during the (fictional) prehistoric Hyborian Age, a time after the fall of Atlantis but eons before the rise of known ancient civilisations. As a young Cimmerian boy, Conan is instructed by his father (William Smith) on the importance of steel to their people and its relationship with their god, Crom.

    Soon after, a group of warriors led by Thulsa Doom (James Earl Jones) systematically destroys Conan's village. Thulsa Doom's lieutenant, Thorgrim, whacks the villagers with his hammer, their dogs kill Conan's father and Rexor, another lieutenant of Doom's, steals the sword of Conan's father. Conan's mother is beheaded by Thulsa Doom in front of Conan with the sword Rexor stole. They sell the children into slavery after the village is rampaged.

    Having been forced to push The Wheel of Pain for years, a now-adult and extremely muscular Conan (Arnold Schwarzenegger) is trained as an arena fighter and then inexplicably freed by his master and begins a dangerous, full-blooded quest to avenge his parents' massacre.
