Eggs is a young boy that was raised by boxtrolls. Ten years later, he comes back up and discovers that the humans fear boxtrolls, believing that they eat humans, and there is a group of men charged with rounding them up to exterminate them.

This was actually a lot more serious than I expected. It actually brought me to tears a few times. It was cute and sweet, but a little sad at the same time, although the ending was happy.

I don’t feel like it was a waste of time to watch it, but I doubt I’d watch it again.
