‘Burn Your Maps’ is a film about an eight-year old American boy, Wes (Jacob Tremblay) who starts acting very strangely: he believes he IS a Mongolian nomad. His fantasy becomes more and more extreme putting pressure on his parents, who do what many Americans would – ‘seek therapy’. None of their attempts to return Wes to normality succeed – eventually his mom says to hell with it and takes her son to Mongolia. From there, it turns into what looks like a sprawling and heartfelt adventure. The journey to Mongolia throws the boy’s family into further turmoil, leading his desperate mother on a trip across the world, with her son.
‘Burn Your Maps’ movie is expected to release on 21 June. The film is not only bound to be a success but to boost tourism to discover what an amazing place Mongolia is.
