SummaryAdd a Summary
Sophie, a hatter, is a responsible 18-year-old girl who on her way to the bakery to visit her sister encounters a mysterious wizard by chance. This encounter arouses the Witch of the Waste, who comes to the hat shop and curses Sophie, transforming her into an old woman. As the curse prevents her from telling anyone of her condition, Sophie decides to leave and seek out a cure.
Sophie meets the fire demon Calcifer, who powers the castle and recognizes that Sophie has been cursed. Calcifer offers to break the curse in exchange for Sophie's help in breaking the spell he's under, which keeps Calcifer bound to the house. When Howl appears, Sophie announces that she is the castle's new cleaning lady, hired by Calcifer because he was sick of how dirty the castle was.
