Kru is a pioneer, living deeper in the jungle of northern Siam than any of his predecessors. He solves the problems caused by leopards and tigers attacking his stock by setting traps and killing those beasts. A baby chang (the Siamese word for elephant) is caught in his trap, and thinking he would tame it so it will work for him one day, he tethers it to a post under his house, which is on stilts. Its mother comes and destroys his house. Kru and his family flee to the village, where a mammoth herd of elephants suddenly appear and decimates the buildings in the village. But the villagers fight back. Written by

In real life, Kru had been a fisherman, hunter, trapper, evangelist and carpenter. He first encountered Merian C. Cooper
and Ernest B. Schoedsack
in the capacity of being their guide and interpreter. He was the one who actually sourced the film's plentiful stock of wild animals. Those are his real children playing his own offspring though his wife is actually played by the spouse of one of his friends. See more
