Brave, funny, angry, optimistic: she has a fierce determination her children will not become victims. She has a strong desire for a fair and just society.
We see her inner and outer worlds unfold on screen, and catch a glimpse of what shaped her character.
As a child Constance was nicknamed ‘elephant cub’ because she was large, and she loved to box. Now she calls herself a ‘mother elephant’. This is what we see in this film: Constance as protective, sometimes angry mother elephant, with much at stake.
Constance has always been a warrior, fighting for what she believed in. She’s no longer the young, physical and feisty ‘elephant cub’. This fighting spirit is Constance’s greatest strength, yet can be her worst enemy.
