Where does an elephant go after a life in the circus?

Ultimately, David must face the difficult truth that the circus in no place for Flora. She needs to be with other elephants.
The road to Flora's retirement, however, is a difficult and emotional journey which tests their bond in unexpected ways. Ten years in the making, One Lucky Elephant explores the consequences of keeping wild animals in captivity, while never losing site of the delicate love story at it's heart. Watch the trailer and check out our Flora Photo Show to see ten thousand pounds of love grow up!
