A disillusioned architect rediscovers Pop Aye, the elephant from his childhood, in the streets of Bangkok. Together they set off on a journey to the village where they grew up. Occasionally funny, occasionally moving road movie about two uprooted souls who meet the most colorful figures on their journey home.
Thana has come to a standstill in life. His work as an architect in Bangkok is no longer appreciated and his wife doesn’t seem to want him around either. Where does a middle-aged man really belong? Then the disillusioned Thana comes across the elephant he grew up with as a boy in the countryside of Thailand. He buys the animal to take it with him on a road trip, back to their shared past.
Thana and the elephant, Pop Aye, are characters you want to take into your heart. Thana approaches others with a warm humanity and his mythical-looking companion is more than just a symbolic figure: the animal has a history and character of its own. These appealing misfits trample through occasionally absurdist or tragicomic scenes that they share with a gentle vagabond who can predict the future, two bureaucratically-inclined police officers and a lonely ladyboy with karaoke aspirations.
