A community of quirky, mischievous creatures known as the Boxtrolls lovingly raise an orphaned human boy named Eggs in the amazing cavernous home they've built beneath the streets of Cheesebridge. But when town villain Archibald Snatcher comes up with a plot to get rid of the Boxtrolls, Eggs ventures above ground where he meets and teams up with a fabulously feisty girl named Winnie who helps him devise a daring plan to save his family.
