Elephant rescues in Thailand are rare, unpredictable and often life threatening. A team of elephant rescuers led by world renowned Asian elephant conservationist and TIME Magazine’s Hero of Asia, Sangdeaun Lek Chailert, embark on a daring mission to rescue Noi Na, a 70-year old captive and partially blind trekking elephant, and bring her 500 miles across Thailand to freedom.

“LOVE & BANANAS: AN ELEPHANT STORY is guaranteed to not leave a dry eye in the house.” – Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter

“[A] clear-eyed, ultimately optimistic activism documentary that packs an urgent emotional punch.” – Tomris Laffly, Film Journal International
