Synopsis

Sōsuke is a good-natured youngster who loves playing by the sea. One day, he finds a beautiful fish trapped in a bottle. He frees the creature, names her Ponyo and takes her everywhere in his green bucket, promising to look after her forever. Touched by Sōsuke’s kindness and fascinated by his life on land, Ponyo decides she wants to become human. Unbeknownst to Sōsuke, however, Ponyo is in fact a goldfish princess – and Fujimoto, her magician father, is distraught at her disappearance and summons all his power to return her to her undersea home. But Ponyo’s love for Sōsuke is so great and her desire to live on land so strong that the world is thrown out of balance, and it takes a lot of love, magic and understanding to make things right again.
