Two things the people of one posh town treasure most are their children and their cheeses; unfortunately, those are also the two things the Boxtrolls covet most. Clad in cast-off cardboard boxes and scuttling about underground, the Boxtrolls may look like a fearsome bunch, but they're actually quite friendly. They even adopt an orphaned infant named Eggs, who may be their only hope for survival when scheming exterminator Archibald Snatcher seeks to earn his entry into the ultra-exclusive Cheesebridge Society by eradicating the misunderstood creatures once and for all. But, little does the villainous Snatcher realize that Eggs has a wealthy friend named Winnie who may hold the key to solving the longstanding feud between the people above, and the benevolent creatures below.
