Pop Aye is the story of a Bangkok architect whose late-midlife crisis leads him to an encounter with the elephant, Popeye, with whom he spent an idyllic childhood in the Thai countryside. Together they embark on a road trip to deliver both man and beast to their origins. Popeye is the center of a mysterious, funny and often absurd universe that, while seemingly particular to Thailand is, ultimately, not unlike our own.
