Overview

Elephants are some of the most intelligent animals on Earth, but they are increasingly threatened by poachers and habitat loss. For one hardworking family in Botswana, helping these majestic creatures has become their life's work.

Louise Hogarth is an independent filmmaker and founder of Dream Out Loud Productions, known for socially conscious documentaries like The Panama Deception and Angels in the Dust. In this film, Hogarth follows the Moller family as they turn their retirement lodge into a camp for 400 elephants and the tourists who want to experience them up close.

In trying to save the animal refugees, Maria and Ben Moller have to tackle natural disasters, injuries, and a lack of government help. With narration by Jerome Flynn of Game of Thrones fame, we follow the family through elation and heartbreak, showing us the true amount of work it takes just to keep elephants alive.
