Thirteen-year-old Arietty Clock is only 20 centimetres tall. She and her family live under the floor of a house, where they 'borrow' things from the humans who live above them. That's why they're called 'Borrowers'. Arietty is lonely, until one day she ventures into the garden and meets a human boy. The two become friends and that is when the trouble begins.
