For generations, Laos was known as the Land of a Million Elephants. Today, there are around 400 elephants left in Laos. If the Laotian elephants become extinct, not only does it mean a loss of one of the largest mammals on earth but also the loss for Laotian history and culture. This documentary explores how the growing Chinese market, deforestation, and tourism all play a cyclical role in the imminent extinction of elephants.
