Inspired by mythology, Elephant in the Room pays homage to Lord Ganapati, in this quirky and poignant reinterpretation of his story.
The protagonist is a young boy, interestingly named Master Tusk, who has been given a new head – an elephant’s! Confused and bewildered, he finds himself lost in the forest. Danger lurks at every turn. He encounters a motley couple – Makadi (spider) and Moork (poacher) - a clumsy duo in search of a big-ticket ransom. They kidnap Master Tusk, but their scheme goes awry when a prophecy is revealed and changes everything. Amidst a cursed love affair, an encounter with an eccentric old elephant and a hunt for a missing head, Master Tusk sets off on an adventure that changes his life. But will he be able to carry his head on his shoulders?
