Master Tusk is a young boy, who has been given a new head- an elephant’s head. Confused and bewildered, he finds himself lost in the forest, where danger lurks at every turn. He encounters a motley couple- Makadi (spider) and Moork (poacher), a clumsy duo in search of a big-ticket ransom. They kidnap Master Tusk, but their scheme goes awry when a prophecy is revealed and changes everything. Amidst a cursed love affair, an encounter with an eccentric old elephant and a hunt for a missing head, Master Tusk sets off on an adventure that changes his life. But will he be able to carry his head on his shoulders? Inspired by the world of Indian mythology, Elephant in the Room pays homage to the beloved deity, Lord Ganapati, in this quirky and poignant reinterpretation of his story.
