About the Documentary

In the National Park of Medumalai, India, there are people who live far away from the big metropolis, co-habitating with nature.

Passed on from generation to generation they devote their lives to take care of the forest habitat and are known as the “Kings of the forest”.

The big protagonist in this story is the baby elephant Raghu, who is adopted by the caretaker and his future wife in the elephant rehabilitation camp. The bond formed is that of parents and child, which leads to heartbreak when the forest officers decide to separate Raghu from his “family”. Filmed in 2019 and counting on beautiful photography we are teleported, during a mere 40 minutes, to this spectacular place.

It is a wonderful documentary that aims straight for the heart.
