Set during the Muromachi Period (1333-1568) of Japan, Princess Mononoke (もののけ姫 Mononoke Hime?) is the tale of a mystical fight between humans and the Animal Gods of the forest.

On the side of the Animal Gods is San (the Mononoke-Hime), a human girl raised by the wolf god Moro. On the side of the humans is Lady Eboshi (Eboshi-Gozen), building a kingdom for oppressed people by cutting down the forest for her iron-making operation.

In the midst of this fight for survival, Ashitaka, the last prince of a dying race, struggles to find a way for both sides to co-exist. But the fighting only becomes more and more bloody and all hope seems to be lost…
