A young boy and a girl with a magic crystal must race against pirates and foreign agents in a search for a legendary floating castle.
As the title suggests, the castle of Laputa flies. Numerous flying contraptions feature in the movie.

The end credits show the remains of the castle Laputa floating on Earth's orbit.
