The contradictions of modern India, with its iPhones and ancient gods, come alive in this funny, heartbreaking, and beautiful romantic thriller. Inspired by a traditional Indian fairy tale, The Elephant Wrestler follows a poor chai-wallah (tea seller) as he attempts to solve the interwoven mysteries of true love, tragedy, and joy. An international success earning rave reviews in New Zealand, Australia, Asia, and the US.
