Recently, the family adventure film "Saving Flora" produced by Dream Factory Group has successfully completed production and entered a tense distribution phase. Surrounding the circus elephant, "Flora", "Saving Flora" is a full-length feature with an emotional and twisty plot. The film is starring Jenna Ortega, a popular young actress from Disney Channel, and David Arquette, the actor well-known for high-grossing blockbuster "Scream" series. Invited to participate in major international film festivals, "Saving Flora" not only resonated with audiences, but also was recognized by the film festival juries.
In "Saving Flora", the old and weak circus elephant "Flora" is unable to continue to perform. Dawn, the circus owner Henry’s 11-year-old daughter, loves Flora and finds her a perfect place for retirement: an elephant sanctuary 480 km away. However, because the circus has been underperforming and money is tight, Henry decides to have Flora euthanized. Henry can't bear to let Dawn witness the death of Flora and arranges for her to take the train to her aunt's house. Dawn sneaks off the train and stealthily goes back to the circus. She steals Flora in the night and walks in the direction of the reserve. Sebastian, a boy they meet on their journey, also joins Dawn in protecting Flora. Overcoming the severe weather, hunger, cold, illness, hunters’ chase and other difficulties, they finally deliver Flora safely to the reserve. Flora can finally settle in the reserve with the help of many people.
As a full-length feature film with a novel theme and many famous Hollywood actors, "Saving Flora" has been invited to participate in several international film festivals and also won some awards.
