. . .
A young boy named Mahito
yearning for his mother
ventures into a world shared by the living and the dead.
There, death comes to an end,
and life finds a new beginning.

A semi-autobiographical fantasy
about life, death, and creation,
 in tribute to friendship,
from the mind of Hayao Miyazaki.
Tickets are available online for shows at nearly all Pittsburgh-area theaters. Please note, some shows are in Japanese with English subtitles while others are dubbed in English.
