Die zehn Jahre alte Chihiro ist gar nicht begeistert, mit ihren Eltern von Tokio in einen kleinen Vorort umzuziehen und dabei alle Freunde hinter sich zu lassen. Auf dem Weg zu ihrem neuen Zuhause verirrt sich die Familie und stößt dabei auf einen geheimnisvollen Tunnel. Von Neugierde gepackt, wagen sich die drei durch den dunklen Gang. Sie wissen nicht, dass sich auf der anderen Seite des Tunnels die Zauberwelt Aburaya befindet - eine Welt, die noch nie zuvor ein Mensch gesehen hat. Sie kommen in eine verlassene Stadt. Einem unwiderstehlichen Duft folgend, finden sie ein Restaurant mit Unmengen von lecker aussehendem Essen, aber niemanden, der sie bedienen könnte - Chihiros Eltern stürzen sich gierig auf das Essen - und werden in Schweine verwandelt. Chihiro hat schreckliche Angst. Plötzlich erscheint ein geheimnisvoller Junge namens Haku, der ihr erklärt, dass es nur eine Möglichkeit gibt, ihre verzauberten Eltern zu retten: Sie muss in den Dienst der bösen Hexe Yubaba treten, die nicht nur die Zauberwelt von Aburaya beherrscht, sondern auch die Herrin über ein riesiges Badehaus ist, in dem sich erschöpfte Götter und Geister erholen und reinigen. Chihiro stellt sich dieser Herausforderung und macht sich auf eine Reise, auf der sie ungeahnten Mut, eine bisher nicht gekannte Willenskraft und Ausdauer beweisen muss. Eine Reise, auf der sie die unglaublichsten Begegnungen machen und die fantastischsten Kreaturen treffen wird - und neue Freunde
