Synopsis:

Khan Kluay is the story of a curious, naughty young elephant growing up independent in deep forest whose insatiable curiosity in regard to his missing father sets him on a journey to a great adventure. The many obstacles and difficulties that he encounters throughout the journey make him strong and the lessons he learns turn him into a brave, proud elephant full of energy but yet very gentle at heart.

Khan Kluay learns to live with humans and to understand the relationship between man and elephant – this eventually leads to self-sacrifice as he goes to war as a warrior.

Winner - Best Feature Film
Animadrid, International Animation Festival.
