This film is based on the Chinese myth of Elephant Trunk Hill.

A larger than life elephant, who is a low-level god, is accidentally left behind on earth while admiring the mysterious hills of Guilin, China. He quickly tries to catch up realizing he has been left behind but falls over too old and exhausted to continue on to heaven. After sleeping for a few seasons he awakens realizing he may never return to heaven. So he begins to find new meaning to his life by helping the barren landscape become lush and beautiful. Helping the growth of Guilin by cultivating the land as a good farmer would he ends up working so hard that he looses all his energy and collapses by the riverside. Later he is woken up by the sound of the people celebrating his arrival and giving thanks for what he has done. The Gods then return for him and begin to take the elephant back to heaven but in exchange they must drain the landscape of all it's beauty in order to bring him back. The Elephant is now faced with a difficult decision to stay on earth forever or return to Heaven with the gods.
