Due to his mother's (Felicity Jones) worsening illness, and constant bullying by classmates, a 12-year-old boy named Connor O'Malley (Lewis MacDougall) is plagued by nightmares. One night, a voice calls to him and Connor discovers an unlikely ally in a tree monster (voiced by Liam Neeson) that appears at his bedroom window.

The tree tell him stories that draw Connor into a fantastical world of monsters and fairy tales, and takes him on a journey of courage, truth, and faith.
