In present-day suburban Tokyo, the scurry of tiny footsteps echoes underneath the floorboards of a sprawling mansion. Fourteen-year-old Arrietty has lived in the recesses of this grand manor all her life, totally unbeknown to the two old ladies who occupy it. Arrietty and her family survive by ‘borrowing’ everyday items from their inadvertent landlords. When 12-year-old Shō moves into the mansion, Arrietty starts to see humans in a different light.
