Make Believe follows six teens who all share an extraordinary passion: the art of magic. Armed with great skill and a dazzling array of illusions, they embark from around the world to attend the World Magic Seminar in Las Vegas. There, they hope to be crowned Teen World Champion by Master Magician Lance Burton.
Onstage, the film’s subject are remarkably assured and dedicated. Offstage, however, these young outsiders confront the diverse obstacles of adolescence, turning Make Believe into an inspiring coming of age story. With great humor, honesty, and heart, Make Believe reveals an enduring world audiences know little about while exploring a time of life no one ever forgets.
