In this film, we tell the mythical story of a troll who works as a toll booth collector and lives under a dark, damp bridge. When a young boy takes an interest in the troll and offers an IKEA lamp to brighten up his living space, things begin to change. Together, they transform the space into a bright and cozy home. In the end, it's more than the Troll's home that's improved, as we see him go from a sad lonely troll to a happy one. And as the boy and the troll enjoy the comfortable space.
