One Lucky Elephant - Trailer
David Balding adopted Flora as a baby elephant, raised her as part of his family, and the star of his show. As Flora got older, David realized the she was unhappy and the circus was no place for her. The road to Flora's retirement was a difficult and emotional journey which tested their bond in unexpected ways. Ten years in the making, One Lucky Elephant explores the consequences of keeping animals in captivity, while never losing sight of the delicate love story at its heart.
Tune in Sunday, December 23rd at 2/1c for a special encore presentation of One Lucky Elephant.
