Krishna vs Kans

"Welcome to IBC with the hottest sporting action that ancient India has to offer. Next up it's the all India, all comers, all-in wrestling. Excitement in the stadium is a fever pitch and it's all because of one man: Krishna!"

This animated short film for schools is a re-telling of a traditional story from Hinduism. Two sports commentators describe the events as King Kans attempts to kill the heroic Krishna by rigging a wrestling match and letting a mad elephant loose in the ring. But can the evil tyrant defeat his own destiny?
