(2019) (Haley Lu Richardson, Cole Sprouse) (PG-13)
- QUICK TAKE:
- 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.
