Pop Aye is the charming yet poetically profound story of once-successful Bangkok architect Thana (Thaneth Warakulnukroh), who is disillusioned with his job and his life at home. One day, as he wanders the city, he chances upon an elephant whom he recognizes as Pop Aye, his beloved childhood friend from their rural home town, named after a favorite cartoon. Impulsively buying the elephant on the spot, Thana decides to take him back home, 300 miles away in the Thai countryside. Pop Aye was a crowd-pleaser at the Sundance Film Festival, where it won the Screenwriting Award in the World Cinema Dramatic Competition.

Ellen is an unruly, 20-year-old anorexic girl who spent the better part of her teenage years being shepherded through various recovery programs, only to find herself several pounds lighter every time. Determined to find a solution, her dysfunctional family agrees to send her to a group home for youths, which is led by a non-traditional doctor. Surprised by the unusual rules—and charmed by her fellow patients—Ellen has to discover for herself how to confront her addiction and attempt self-acceptance, in order to stand a chance against her demons.
