Drama: Two teenagers who are hospitalized for treatment of their cystic fibrosis must contend with becoming romantically involved and having to maintain a distance between each other to avoid the risk of bacterial cross-contamination.
Stella Grant (HALEY LU RICHARDSON) is a teenager who's had to deal with cystic fibrosis all of her life, including repeated stints in hospitals for treatment. She's back in one now -- with just fifty percent lung capacity and hoping for a transplant -- alongside her childhood friend, Poe (MOISES ARIAS), who likewise has the same ailment. Due to the threat of getting a deadly bacterial infection from each other, such patients must often wear gloves and masks and remain six feet apart from each other.

Stella doesn't feel that will be a problem concerning a new patient there, Will Newman (COLE SPROUSE), who, like everyone else on the floor, is watched over carefully by nurse Barb (KIMBERLY HEBERT GREGORY) and her team. Will's more daredevil attitude and not keeping up with his meds don't mesh with Stella's self-proclaimed, OCD-fueled control freak nature, but he likes something in her. And thus he manages to convince her to allow him to draw her in exchange for him following his medical regime.

As the two form a friendship that turns into something more, they must contend with the fact that they must remain six feet apart and the fact that their futures are anything but certain.

The teenage cast and related love story might draw in teens and older pre-teens.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
