Thana (Thaneth Warakulnukroh), a middle-aged architect, is disillusioned at work as well as at home with his wife Bo (Penpak Sirikul). One day, as he wanders the Bangkok city, he chances upon an elephant which turns out to be his childhood companion, Pop Aye. He then decides to take the elephant back to the rural village where they grew up together and into his uncle Peak’s (Narong Pongpab) care. Thus, they embark on their homecoming journey through the rural Thailand to their hometown in Loei Province, Isan. A debut feature written and directed by Kirsten Tan.

Save the dates to continue our World Cinema Series, there will be a film on October 24th, the Israeli film “The Women’s Balcony” and on November 29th, Vittorio DeSica’s “IL Boom.”
