On a chance encounter, a disenchanted architect bumps into his long-lost elephant on the streets of Bangkok. Excited, he takes his elephant on a journey across Thailand, in search of the farm where they grew up together.

Secara kebetulan, seorang arsitek putus asa berpapasan dengan gajahnya yang telah lama hilang di jalanan Bangkok. Dengan senang hati, ia membawa gajahnya dalam perjalanan melintasi Thailand, untuk mencari peternakan tempat mereka pernah tumbuh bersama.
