Thana (Thaneth Warakulnukroh) has had a successful career designing buildings in Bangkok, but the project that put him on the map is now a decrepit shopping complex that is in danger of being demolished, and serves as a symbol of Thana’s declining relevance. Wandering the city streets in a funk, Thana comes across an old elephant who he recognises as Pop Aye, a childhood pet who used to be owed by his family on their farm in the provinces. Propelled into remembrances of his boyhood, Thana is compelled to buy Pop Aye and, on foot, take the elephant back home to the family farm.
Tan’s ambling drama throws up memorable characters and musings on the state of modern Thailand as Thana and Pop Aye make their way back through the reminiscences of memory in this very singular road movie.
