Join elephant mother Athena as she leads her family on an epic journey across the African plains in search of a new home. Narrated by Chiwetel Ejiofor (12 Years a Slave).

This stunningly shot documentary by Emmy award-winning filmmakers Victoria Stone and Mark Deeble has all the character development and narrative twists and turns of a fictional feature. The elephant matriarch must save her family, including a bunch of boisterous youngsters, from drought and famine, by leading them on a long and perilous quest through the dry savannah. Athena’s knowledge of the complex ecosystem is the only thing ensuring the family’s survival, but some challenges are beyond even the mighty matriarch. A timeless tale of a caring family united by loss and endurance, The Elephant Queen will enrapture audiences aged 7 and older.

'The Elephant Queen' presents the plight of African pachyderms as a story with heartrending characters and traditional narrative arcs — the circle of life examined over a year on the savannah.
