Description

Raised by wolves and calling the forest her home, a young girl by the name of Princess Mononoke is the only one who can save the planet!

It was the Age of Iron: a time when mankind was just starting to understand its ability to exploit the earth and all its natural resources. But a war was brewing--a war between a village of iron miners and the animal gods of the surrounding forest.

The battle continues with no easy resolution in sight. Still fighting to bring peace to both sides, Ashitaka walks a fine line between the two warring factions. First, he has to convince Princess Mononoke to trust him. Secondly, he's got to reach Lady Eboshi before she single-handedly eliminates the revered god of life and death.
