Film sypopsis: "A young apprentice hunter and her father journey to Ireland to help wipe out the last wolf pack. But everything changes when she befriends a free-spirited girl from a mysterious tribe rumored to transform into wolves by night." (Synopsis source: IMDB.com)

Based on our lively discussion, it appears that there may be two stories blended together in "Wolfwalkers".  This storyform represents the story that focuses on the daughter/father relationship instead of the relationship between the apprentice hunter (Robin) and the wolfwalker (Mebh).  There was also a heavy debate as to whether it was a Success or Failure story, which was likely complicated by the dualing narratives threaded in the film.
