Spirited Away

Sen to Chihiro no kamikakushi

After moving to a small suburban town, Chihiro and her parents discover what seems to be an abandoned amusement park that mysteriously contains a restaurant with plenty of food, but no customers. When her parents are turned into pigs after sampling the restaurant’s cuisine, Chihiro discovers that the park is a haven for hundreds of spirits and monsters ruled by the bobble-headed witch Yubaba. In order to save her parents, Chihiro is forced to work in the spirit world, where she finds herself in the midst of a feud between Yubaba and her gentle twin sister.
