Sisters Satsuki and Mei move with their father to a new house that lies in the shadow of the magnificent camphor tree that is the seat of the King of the Forest, Totoro. Meeting him and other fantastic forest creatures, the girls see the depth of the world around them. Their relationships with Totoro, their father, and with each other grow as their new house becomes their new home. “Here is a children's film made for the world we should live in, rather than the one we occupy.” (Roger Ebert)
