While protecting his village from rampaging boar-god/demon, a confident
young warrior, Ashitaka, is stricken by a deadly curse. To save his
life, he must journey to the forests of the west. Once there, he's
embroiled in a fierce campaign that humans were waging on the forest.
The ambitious Lady Eboshi and her loyal clan use their guns against the
gods of the forest and a brave young woman, Princess Mononoke, who was
raised by a wolf-god. Ashitaka sees the good in both sides and tries to
stem the flood of blood. This is met by animosity by both sides as they
each see him as supporting the enemy.
