Discover a secret world within our own.

This is a story of a family of “little”people. Beneath the floorboards of a sprawling mansion set in a magical, overgrown garden in the suburbs of Tokyo, tiny Arrietty lives with her equally tiny parents. The house is occupied by two old ladies, who are absolutely unaware of the existence of their miniature tenants.

Arrietty’s parents have always warned her: "Never let humans see you." Once seen, little people always have to move on. But the adventurous Arrietty doesn’t listen, and a 12 years old boy, Sho discovers her.

The two begin to confide in each other and, before long, a friendship begins to blossom…

Presented by Consulate-General of Japan, The University of Waikato and The Japan Foundation.
