She meets Pazu, a young boy who has been looking for Laputa, and together they try to save the magical land from the clutches of a government secret agent.

This is the story of Ponyo, a little fish from the sea who struggles to realise her dream of living with a boy named Sosuke. It also tells of how five-year old Sosuke manages to keep a most solemn promise. Ponyo places Hans Christian Anderson’s The Little Mermaid in a contemporary Japanese setting. It is a tale of childhood love and adventure – Hayao Miyazaki. The film encapsulates everything that makes the studio’s output so unique. Breathtaking animation combined with thrilling storytelling makes this another worthy addition to the Ghibli catalogue.
