When respected psychiatrist Dr. Lawrence (Colm Feore, Thor) is reported missing, the only person that might know of his whereabouts is patient Michael Aleen (Xavier Dolan, Heartbeats), a disturbed young man - haunted by his childhood, obsessed with elephants and who has a reputation that precedes him. In a desperate effort to get to the bottom of the dilemma, head practitioner Dr. Green (Bruce Greenwood,Capote) sets about questioning Michael – embarking on a series of deeply manipulative mind games where nothing is quite as it seems where Michael retains full control. The three demands Michael has over the situation is that Dr. Green not be privy to his patient file, that ward nurse Susan Peterson (Academy Award® nominee Catherine Keener, Being John Malkovich) is not to be involved and that he is to receive a box of chocolates for his cooperation. But as Green’s line of enquiry deepens, the unpredictable nature of the case creeps like a shadow across proceedings, concealing past pains and complex concerns.
Also featuring Carrie-Anne Moss (The Matrix) and based on the play by Nicolas Billon, Elephant Song is an intense psychological drama in the captivating tradition of Carnage and A Pure Formality, where the truth is all in the detail.
