    About Spirited Away

    Studio Ghibli’s Academy Award-winning film is the enchanting story of ten-year-old Chihiro, who stumbles into an incredible world of spirits ruled over by the sorceress Yubaba. Her parents are transformed into pigs and she ends up working in a magical bathhouse, but this little girl isn’t going to give up. She must use her wits and bravery to survive in her bewildering new environment, free her parents from the enchantment and return home.
