In November 2017, elephant caretaker Somsak Riengngen died under the mighty tusk of his prized elephant Ekasit, during a job he took on at the zoo. The elephant was believed to have suffered from a natural state of periodic aggression known as musth – a condition he goes through when he comes of age. Somsak's son, Ake now becomes his successor as he struggles to care for the elephant that killed his father while taking care of his own elephant who has come of his age of musth.
