After the death of her father and an attack from the hostile Tormekia, Princess Nausicaa must unite her people against the threat of annihilation. Using her uncanny ability to communicate with the giant crustacean Ohmu, Nausicaa must find a way to unite her people and avert apocalypse. Based on the manga of the same name, and using Miyazaki’s distinct stylistic flare for the dreamlike and fantastical. It also inaugurates Miyazaki’s enduring collaboration and friendship with composer Joe Hisaishi.
