Spirited Away is the story of Chihiro, a 10-year-old girl in the midst of a move to the suburbs, who wanders into a mysterious town and finds an "other world" of gods and monsters, ruled over by a witch. There, humans are changed into animals and disappear. To survive in this new world, she must take on a new name (Sen), and goes to work in a huge bathhouse patronized by bizarre beings. Will she find a way back to her own world, or will she fall victim to what is causing the disappearances? Mom, Dad, and their daughter Chihiro are driving on their way to their new home. As Chihiro's not excited to be attending a new school, Dad takes a wrong turn, and the family becomes lost in a forest that leads to a strange abandoned amusement park. Chihiro wanders off and returns only to find out Mom and Dad have turned into pigs. Frightened as night falls, Chihiro discovers she's in a world inhabited by ghosts, demons, and strange gods. A mysterious boy Haku helps her and tells her that to survive in this world, Chihiro must find work. She must go down to the boiler room and seek out an old man named Kamaji..
