Kham is a young villager living with his father in Thailand. They raise and take care of three elephants (a bull, cow, and their calf), whom they regard as family. When the mother elephant is killed by would-be kidnappers, Kham's father entrusts to young Kham the duty of protecting the baby elephant Kohrn.

Ten years later, Kham and his father are taking the two elephants to be viewed by the king at a festival, but it turns out to be a trap. The kidnappers managed to steal the two elephants and shoot Kham's father when he tries to stop them. As he dies, the father tells Kham to go after them and save their elephants.

Kham begins a journey traces the crime gang to Australia, where he is aided by a Thai-born police officer named Mark in bringing down the conspiracy led by the ruthless Madame Rose. She is running an illegal ring, stealing rare and endangered animals and serving them at her underground restaurant, among other crimes.

Will Kham be able to stop her and bring Kohrn safely home?
