Orphaned Peter Quill (Chris Pratt) is summoned into space, where he matures into Star-Lord, the galactic treasure hunter (and legend in his own mind). He finds himself in space prison with trigger-happy raccoon-like Rocket (Bradley Cooper), sentient tree Groot (Vin Diesel), Drax the Destroyer (Dave Bautista) and Gamora (Zoe Saldana), who is the adopted daughter of arch-villain Thanos (Josh Brolin). These 'Guardians' contend with Quill's murderous mentor Yondu (Michael Rooker) and the cutthroat Ronan the Accuser (Lee Pace), who seeks the most powerful objects in the universe, the Infinity Stones, on behalf of Thanos. Accompanied by a feel-good soundtrack – appropriately named 'Awesome Mix Vol. 1', which was a gift to Quill from his dying mother – the Guardians create a trail of chaos through high-impact battle scenes in far-out locations.
