In the movie a group of Norwegian filmmakers students travel to the most isolated region of Norway on a mission to confront a notorious bear poacher. Once there they hear rumors that giant trolls lurk in the countryside and they are the real prey ofthe hunter. Bears are not his true target, but a mere smokescreen to obscure what he’s really after: trolls. A secret government agency tried to cover up the existence of these massive monsters, but occasionally the trolls manage to break their containment area. When that happens, it falls on Hans to capture the creatures at all costs. Trolls are highly sensitive to sunlight, and traditional weapons only make them angry. Hans carries an enormous UV light. The only way that humans can travel in the area undetected is to cover their bodies in a foul-smelling concoction that makes them invisible to the troll’s highly developed sense of smell. If the group will survive long enough to get their incredible footage to the rest of the world, they could be responsible for revealing the most impressive discovery in the history of humankind. Here’s the trailer:
