The film tells the story of Chihiro Ogino. She is a sullen ten-year-old girl. While moving to a new neighborhood, Chihiro enters an alternate reality inhabited by spirits and monsters. After her parents are transformed into pigs by the witch Yubaba, Chihiro takes a job working in Yubaba’s bathhouse to find a way to free herself and her parents and escape to the human world.
