Arrietty is a House Borrower who has lived her life deep below the floorboards, dreaming of exciting adventures in the great outdoors. When her father, Pod, takes her upstairs to learn the tricks of borrowing, Arrietty discovers a new world and a new friend, a human boy. With the Borrowers secret world discovered by ‘human beans’ it’s time to make a great escape!
