Based on the short story of the same name by Robyn Joy Leff. In this film adaptation, an eight-year-old boy named Wes (Jacob Tremblay, The Room) has an existential epiphany after a family tragedy, and becomes convinced that he is actually a Mongolian goat herder. He uses the help of an aspiring filmmaker to convince his parents to take a soul-searching journey to a village in Mongolia, where Wes believes he belongs.
