Noctus, the owl, never gets tired to telling epic stories about the Guardians of Ga’Hoole to his young barn owlets Kludd, Soren, and their younger sister, Eglantine. Soren and Eglantine love the story, but jealous Kludd gets bored with the tales of the protectors of the Kingdom of Ga’Hoole. One day, Soren and Kludd fall out of their nest while learning to fly alone and they are kidnapped by evil owls to work for Metal Beak and Nyra. The owlets are divided into soldiers or workers in the Pelletorium. Soren befriends elf owl Gylfie, and they learn that the owlets are “moon-blinked” by the moon while sleeping, and while awake, brainwashed. They manage to fight the brainwashing and Gylfie’s captor Grimble teaches them how to fly. They meet the Guardians of Ga’Hoole and together fight against Metal Beak and Nyra and the evil army of The Pure Ones.
