The story is set in a colorful and vibrant world of the Trolls, small and happy creatures with wild and colorful hair. They love singing, dancing, and hugging. However, their joy is threatened when the Bergens, a race of large, miserable creatures, discover that they can be happy by eating Trolls. The Bergens capture the Trolls and take them to their town, where they plan to eat them during an annual festival called Trollstice.

The Trolls are rescued by Poppy, a pink Troll princess, and Branch, a gray grumpy Troll who refuses to sing or dance. Poppy and Branch set out on a mission to rescue their friends and save the Trolls from being eaten by the Bergens. Along the way, they encounter obstacles and challenges, but with the power of friendship, music, and teamwork, they manage to overcome them all and save the day.
