Kham (Tony Jaa) grew up protecting two elephants in his native Thailand: PorYai and its child, Kohrn.  When both of the animals are stolen it leads him to a corrupt MP in Bangkok, and eventually to a poacher in Australia.

A restaurant owner named Johnny (Johnny Nguyen) now possesses PorYai and Kohrn, whose establishment is a front for a much larger criminal enterprise.  In Sydney Kham meets Pla (BongkojKhongmalai), a young student forced into prostitution by the gangster.  Pla not only provides shelter for Kham, but also guides him to Johnny's hideout, where he will fight to save his beloved elephants.

The Protector was a commercial success, netting $43 million worldwide -- fives times its $8.5 million budget.
