Episode 69 of One Week Only! This week's key film is "Pop Aye" about a middle-aged architect who happens to find his childhood pet elephant Pop Aye, and decides to walk him across Thailand to his family's farm. Directed by Kirsten Tan, it's a delightful, charming road trip, with unique characters and a touching central friendship, as well as a heartfelt meditation on regret and trying to reclaim the past.
