The girl fell in love with elephants as a young child. Now that she is of age, she has begun her training as a mahout. Her father and mentor along with a wise elephant trainer will teach her how to handle this massive beast, and in the process developed a bond unique in the animal kingdom, a bond between humans and elephant 4,000 years in the making.

As the film progresses we follow the young girl through her training to a climatic first trek to a distant village. This journey ... Written by Infocus Asia
