Myanmar is the last country in the world to use trained elephants and their handlers, men known at “Oozies,” for selective logging — the removal of one tree at a time — an effort that helps preserve the forests. This is a story of Man working together toward a common goal with huge, humorous, gracious animals that are critically endangered.

Written and directed by Suzanne Campbell-Jones.
