A comedic fable that unfolds in Cheesebridge, a posh town obsessed with wealth, class and the finest of cheeses. Beneath its charming cobblestone streets dwell the Boxtrolls, foul monsters who crawl out of the sewers at night and steal the two things the townspeople hold most dear: their children and their cheeses... at least that’s the legend residents have always believed.
In truth, the Boxtrolls are a community of quirky and lovable creatures who wear recycled cardboard boxes the way turtles wear their shells. This timid and kind-hearted band of tinkerers makes nightly forays above ground to search for choice bits of junk that they use to build wondrously ingenious contraptions in the underground caverns where they live.
