A psychiatrist is drawn into a complex mind game when he questions a disturbed patient about the disappearance of a colleague.


An eminent psychiatrist vanishes from his office, and the last person to see him is Michael, a troubled patient obsessed with all things elephant. The hospital director, Dr Greenberg, is called in to help. He insists on interviewing Michael, despite the warnings of nurse Peterson, who understands all too well the devastating loss that still haunts Dr Greenberg. Michael innocently goes on about elephants and opera (with occasional hints of murder and foul play), and lures the hospital director into a devious trap. Dr Greenberg will face the truth of his actions, but the price he pays for redemption will be a heavy one...

Inspired by the raw and brilliant writing of Nicolas Billon, ELEPHANT SONG reveals itself to be a story within a story, like nesting Russian dolls.  It’s a metaphor for the mind of young Michael, institutionalized in a psychiatric ward.  He takes the hospital’s director, Dre. Greene, for a sweeping ride, as each manipulative move uncovers a new one.  We will discover that the fierce, intimate exchange between Dr. Greene and Michael echoes far beyond the hospital walls, with resonance from the past, but most of all, with a profound impact on the present and the future. Michael’s journey does indeed set the stage for truth and, ironically, for love, something that our lonely boy never had.
