As the Ogino family were moving to a sub-urban area they missed a turn and came across a tunnel. The tunnel led them to a place which seemed to be a different world at the break of dusk. They found streets filled with restaurant opened for service but had neither servants nor customers. Hungry from the journey Akio and Yūko helped themselves with some food while curious chihiro  went to explore the place, when she came across Haku who insisted in being a childhood friend of chihiro.  Yubaba cursed akio and Yūko ,turning them into pigs and capturing them slaughter, thus begin chihiro’s venture to find a way to turn her parents back into humans and return to human world.
