In this entrancing tale by renowned Japanese animator Hiyao Miyazaki, World War I flying ace Marco Pagott mysteriously turns from a man into a pig after all his comrades die in battle.

After an attack by a brash American pilot, Porco meets confident Fio, who repairs his plane with her girl mechanics, and sees him for who he really is.
