Away (Sen to Chihiro no Kamikakushi) is a fantasy adventure
with a ten year-old girl, which starts in everyday Japan but goes
somewhere very different. For young Chihiro and her family,
a mysterious tunnel and haunted town lead to the Land of Spirits,
inhabited by gods and monsters and ruled by the greedy witch Yu-baba.
Chihiro’s parents are transformed into pigs; to rescue them,
she must surrender her name and serve in this world. Luckily
she finds friends and allies, including the handsome but mysterious
boy Haku. Initially sulky and listless, Chihiro (or Sen, as
she’s now called) finds inner strengths and establishes an
identity in this strange world. But can she win back her name
and return home?
