Based on the true story of Chhouk, the Asian elephant calf who lost his foot to a poacher’s snare in the forests of Mondulkiri, this touching tale recounts his rescue at the hands of Wildlife Alliance Cambodia conservationist, Nick Marx. When Chhouk was found in the forest alone, malnourished and gravely injured, he was taken to the Phnom Tamao Wildlife Rescue Centre for care. The conservationists nursed him back to health and fitted him with an artificial foot, enabling him to walk again!
