An uplifting and thought-provoking tale about elephant conservation.

When they came, the herd scattered in fright, their trumpeting calls shattering the morning. Seree and her mother were cornered.

Life in the jungle was good for young Seree and her mother until the day poachers come. Separated from her mother and the life she knows, Seree is taken to work in a circus. Forced to perform every day and spend each night in chains, Seree longs to be with the herd and reunited with her mother. Will she ever be free? A poignant story by an active elephant conservationist that puts the spotlight on animal welfare.
