Summary
Sophie is cursed by the Witch of the Waste and turned into an old woman unable to tell anyone of her plight. She goes to the ambulatory castle of the notorious wizard Howl and insinuates herself into his household. Sophie befriends Calcifer, the fire demon who powers the castle and is bound to Howl by a contract, the terms of which he cannot reveal. They promise to help each other with their problems. Like Calcifer, Howl can see through the Witch's spell, and he and Sophie fall in love. Sophie helps Howl confront his former teacher and the Witch of the Waste
