ÉLÉPHANT follows the Story of Clérèse. The only world she has ever known is the 19th century Parisian brothel where her mother, Magdith works as a prostitute. Magdith desperately struggles to protect Clérèse from growing up too fast and out of the clutches of her volatile father. Everything is shaken when a young man arrives at the brothel with his master and Clérèse’s belly begins to grow. What is the fantastical thing that grows within her?
