Based on a book by Finnish officer Yrjo Kokko written during World War II, this enchanting fantasy tale is about Illusia (Annu Marttila), a little fairy like Tinker Bell, who comes down to earth from the rainbow where she lives with her family, and meets Pessi (Sami Kangas), a gnome living in the forest. The time is World War II and when they first meet, the soldiers in the area are anticipating an attack along their front line - but as the story evolves, Pessi and Illusia's only real enemy seems to be the nasty Spiderman (Jorm Uotinen) and White Death (Pauli Pollanen) - nothing a good fairy and gnome cannot ultimately overcome.
