Another film by Hayao Miyazaki tells the tale of 10-year-old Chihiro. She and her parents are moving to a new town. During the drive the father gets lost and unknowingly enters a portal to another world. Upon discovering this he insists on exploring this new place. This is the world of witches, demons and spirits called the Spirit World. Chihiro’s parents are soon turned into pigs by a witch’s trap so she sets off trying to find a cure for them. She is told by a nearby boy that she must cure them before sunrise the next day or the spell will be permanent. The witch that cast the spell also controls the boy by “taking” his name. He no longer remembers who he is because of this. He warns Chihiro that she will try to do the same to her. So, she must rescue her parents by breaking the spell as well as discover a way out of the Spirit World in which she is trapped, all before the next sunrise.
