A young girl seeks the help of the wizard Howl to remove a curse.
In the land of Ingary, where seven league boots and cloaks of invisibility do exist, Sophie Hatter catches the unwelcome attention of the Witch of the Waste and is put under a curse.
Determined to make the best of things, Sophie travels to one place where she might get help - the moving castle that hovers on the hills above Market Chipping.
But the castle belongs to the dreaded Wizard Howl whose appetite, they say, is satisfied only by the souls of young girls...
