Cartoon Summary:

A small town by the sea. Five-year-old Sosuke lives high on a cliff overlooking the Inland Sea. One morning, while playing on the rocky beach below his house, he discovers a goldfish named Ponyo with her head stuck fast in a jam jar. Sosuke rescues her and keeps her in a green plastic pail. Ponyo is fascinated by Sosuke and Sosuke feels the same about Ponyo. He tells her: "Don't worry, I'll protect you and take care of you." But Ponyo's father Fujimoto- once human, now a sorcerer who lives deep under the sea- forces her to return with him into the ocean depths. "I want to be human!", Ponyo declares. Determined to become a little girl and make her way back to Sosuke, Ponyo escapes. But before she does it, she empties the Water of Life, Fujimoto's precious store of magical elixir, into the ocean. The sea waters rise. Ponyo's sisters are transformed into enormous fish-shaped tidal waves that climb as high as Sosuke's house on the cliff. The chaos of the ocean world envelops Sosuke's little town, making it sink beneath the waves.
