Spirited Away” follows 10-year-old Chihiro (Rumi Hiiragi) on another seemingly-boring trip with her parents. However, when they stop at a mysterious village, her parents undergo a puzzling transformation, and she is whisked into a world of fantastic spirits, shape-shifting dragons and a witch who never wants to see her leave. Chihiro must call on the courage she never knew she had to free herself and return her family to the outside world.

“Spirited Away” is widely acclaimed as one of the greatest animated films of all times, earning a Best Animated Feature Academy Award for Hayao Miyazaki and unanimous praise from critics and audiences alike.
