Two former photojournalists bring a large format camera to South-East Asia to portray Asian elephants living in captivity and to record their biographies.
Ten years earlier, in 1999, they had spent months in a logging camp in a mountain range of western Burma.
They go back to the same camp to find out whether the elephants they had filmed back in 1999 would still be there.
After Burma, the photographers travel in three other Asian countries to determine how different cultures influence the fate of the animals and their future.

The elephant memories become palpable while the life-size photographs reveal the individuals behind the collective and shapeless face of the species.
