Plot summary

What is Wolfwalkers movie plot?

Here is a short review of "Wolfwalkers" movie plot summary.

In Ireland in 1650 middle ages, the residents of the town of Scotland Kilkenny Roush are working to clear the nearby woods under orders from the authoritarian Lord Protector Oliver Cromwell (Simon McBurney), putting them at odds with a wolf pack. English hunter Bill Goodfellowe (Sean Bean), with his rebellious daughter Robyn (Honor Kneafsey), has been summoned to Kilkenny by the Lord Protector to exterminate the wolves. Wanting to help Bill, Robyn secretly follows him out of town with her pet falcon, Merlyn. After accidentally shooting Merlyn with her crossbow while trying to kill a wolf, Robyn watches a mysterious girl take him into the woods and follows them. Upon finding Merlyn, miraculously healed, a young wolf startles her into a trap. As the wolf frees Robyn, she tries to fight it, causing it to bite her. Merlyn and the wolf lead Robyn to the wolves' den, where she discovers the wolf is the same girl from earlier. The girl, Mebh, explains she is a "wolfwalker", whose spirit becomes a wolf when she sleeps. Robyn comes to befriend Mebh, and also learns that her dormant mother Moll's spirit has not yet returned in her search for a new home for their pack. Returning home, Robyn tries to convince Bill of the existence of wolfwalkers, but he scolds her for going into the forest instead.
The next morning, while working at the scullery by order of the Lord Protector, Robyn is drawn into his chambers by a mysterious voice coming from a concealed cage, but is ushered out by the head maid. That night, as she sleeps, Robyn discovers her soul has left her body and become a wolf as a result of Mebh's bite, thus turning her into a wolfwalker. Robyn returns to the woods where Mebh helps her get accustomed to her new form. Upon returning to Kilkenny, Robyn infiltrates the Lord Protector's manor. She finds Moll inside the cage, who tells Robyn that Mebh and the pack must leave the forest, as the Lord Protector is planning to burn it to wipe them out. The Lord Protector, seeking to restore control of the town, assures the townspeople he can tame the wolf he's captured, and by extension, nature itself. He ignores Robyn's pleas to let Moll go and demotes Bill to a foot soldier for failing to eliminate the wolves.
