Film Synopsis: A young and overeager goldfish named Ponyo decides to leave her underwater world behind after making friends with a five-year-old boy who lives in a small coastal village. Inspired by Hans Christian Andersen’s “The Little Mermaid,” “Ponyo” comes to the big screen as imagined by legendary Japanese animator Hayao Miyazaki, whose credits include films “Spirited Away” and “Howl’s Moving Castle.”
