Stubborn, spoiled, and naive 10-year-old Chihiro Ogino is unhappy when she and her parents discover an abandoned amusement park on the way to their new home. Cautiously venturing inside, she realizes there's more to this place than seeing it with her own eyes, as strange things start to happen at sunset. The ghostly apparitions and food that turned her parents into pigs were just the beginning — Chihiro had accidentally entered the spirit world. Now trapped, she must muster up the courage to live and work among the spirits, with the help of the mysterious Haku and the unique cast of characters she encounters along the way.
Vivid and engaging, Sen to Chihiro no Kamikakushi tells the story of Chihiro's journey through an alien world as she tries to save her parents and return home.
