Chihiro is a 10-year-old who's moving house. Her parents get lost, however, in a forest, outside of a tunnel. They decide to investigate, and end up at a 'theme park'. Chihiro is reluctant to go but goes along for fear of being left alone. Her parents find a lone food counter, filled with fresh food. They start to wolf it down, much to the dismay of Chihiro. She runs off, and she meets a boy, who tells her to leave before its 'too late'. She runs back to her parents, but they have been turned into pigs. To free her parents of the spell she must work at the 'theme park', which is actually a hot bath centre for the Gods and Spirits, over coming quite a bit of danger.
