Loosely based on a true story, 12 year old Tom (Art Parkinson) and his misfit friends fight to save Buster the baby elephant during the air raids on Belfast in 1941. This engaging, heartfelt period drama depicts a little-known story about the extraordinary way an elephant in an Irish zoo was saved during World War II. Read about the true story here.
