This is a fantasy adventure with a ten year-old girl, which starts in everyday Japan but goes somewhere very different. For young Chihiro and her family, a mysterious tunnel and haunted town lead to the Land of Spirits, inhabited by Gods and monsters and ruled by the greedy witch Yu-baba. Chihiro's parents are transformed into pigs. To rescue them, she must surrender her name and serve in this world. Luckily she finds friends and allies, including the handsome but mysterious boy Haku. Initially sulky and listless, Chihiro or Sen as she's now called finds inner strengths and establishes an identity in this strange world. But can she win back her name and return home?
The latest production of Ghibli Studios and it's truly another gem. Chihiro's journey, to find a way to restore her parents to human-form and escape from the clutches of an evil witch to get back to the real world, will take you across beautiful landscapes and you'll experience the hardships that Chihiro (known as Sen in the fantasy world) has to face.
