In recent years, elephants have been killed by humans for ivory. As a result of the poachers' brutality, many of the baby elephants were orphaned. The elephants have also been brutally abused in shows for tourists.

Mongkol was once a logging elephant, kept in captivity in the forests of Thailand. Hard work cost him his right eye and his tusks. This 61-year-old elephant enjoys listening to Pianist Paul play Beethoven's Piano Sonata No. 14 to him on silent nights. August 12 is celebrated as "International Elephant Day" every year. Let's play Beethoven's Piano Sonata No. 14,bringing some comfort to the elephants trapped in a dark world.
