In 1805 in the fictional town of Cheesebridge, rumors abound that subterranean trolls known as Boxtrolls kidnap and kill young children. Pest exterminator Archibald Snatcher strikes a deal with the city’s mayor Lord Portley-Rind, offering to exterminate every Boxtroll in exchange for membership in the city’s cheese-loving council, the White Hats (disregarding his severe allergy toward cheese that causes swelling).
In actuality, the Boxtrolls are peaceful creatures, wearing cardboard boxes, who emerge from underground at night to scavenge through the trash for items they can use to make useful inventions. A baby boy named Eggs lives among them, cared for by a Boxtroll named Fish. As Eggs grows up over a period of ten years, he becomes dismayed over the disappearing Boxtrolls as Snatcher captures them.
