An Elephant in the Garden is a moving story from the creators of the hit show Private Peaceful which resonates with the plight of refugees and displaced people fleeing wars around the world today.
1945. Dresden, Germany. Lizzie, her mother and an elephant from the zoo flee the Allied fire-bombing at the end of the Second World War.
Escaping the Allies' advance from the West and the Russian armies from the East, this extraordinary trio of refugees meets an RAF officer who has bailed out of his aeroplane, a homeless school choir on the run from the Nazis and the American tanks appearing over the horizon.
