Stella’s only chance of survival is a new lung. Until then, she has to stay away from everyone and everything in order not to endanger her already weak immune system. Without exception. Will is very different – it cannot be stopped and is ready to take full risk. Once he is 18, he will turn his back on the hospital to finally see more of the world.

But the more time the two spend together, the more the prescribed safety distance between them feels like a penalty. Would a little more closeness really be that deadly – especially if it prevents your hearts from breaking? When a serious illness stands in the way of a young love.
