The Map of Tiny Perfect Things Plot: What is it About?
The film follows Mark, who is happy with the way his life has panned out thanks to an infinite time loop he has gotten stuck in. To that end, the 17-year-old follows a breezy daily routine that involves the activities and events he is aware of and has done several times. Mark paints the perfect picture of a white teen prototype and has yet not grown weary of his repetitive schedule. However, uncertainty makes its way into Mark’s life with the arrival of Margaret, the only other person who is warped inside the time loop and is aware of the same, just like Mark.
Soon, the two strike up a compelling friendship that forms a pivotal theme for the film. Meanwhile, their contrasting characters also add flavor to the script. While Mark is an aspiring but floundering artist, Margaret has big dreams of becoming a NASA mission specialist. The two friends embark on a mission to make a note of every moment or object that turns up outside of what they know to exist within the loop, accounting for even the slightest change from the pre-determined mundane happenings.
Given their personalities and their circumstances, the two quite obviously develop feelings for each other. As they follow through with their mission, Mark and Margaret are faced with an essential question of whether they can break the loop and whether they want to. The premise of the film is a refreshing change from other recent YA films. Check out the trailer for the film here.
