Mikael, a young gay photographer, finds in the courtyard of his apartment block a small, man-like creature. It is a young troll. Mikael gives the troll a name, Pessi, and takes him home and hides him.The first thing Mikael does is to research everything he can about trolls from the internet, from folklore, nature journals and newspaper cuttings. What Mikael does not discover is that trolls exude pheromones that smell like a Calvin Klein aftershave and that this has a profound aphrodisiac effect on all those around him.Shooting an assignment for an ultra-hip make of jeans, Mikael finds himself fast-tracked into a dangerous liaison with Martes, the art director of the advertising agency, while others around him become obsessed with him because he carries the troll's scent.However, what Mikael fails to learn, with tragic consequences, is that Pessi the troll is the interpreter of man's darkest, most forbidden desires.
