Five Feet Apart (2019) follows the story of Will and Stella, two young men who refuse to be defined by the obstacles that separate them. Stella and Will are 17, and they both suffer from a threatening disease. Stella Grant is just like a 17-year-old teenager: she’s attached to her laptop and loves her best friends. But, unlike most adolescents, she suffers from cystic fibrosis and spends much of her time in the hospital. Her life is full of routines, limits and self-control, all of which are tested when she meets Will Newman, a young man with the same affection. There is an immediate attraction between the two, although the restrictions dictate that they must maintain a safe distance between them. As the connection between Will and Stella intensifies, so is the desire to defy the rules that govern every moment of their lives. The attraction of adolescents becomes complicated when touching is not an option, but the pair learns quickly that possibilities are endless. However, things are further complicated by Will’s potentially dangerous revolt against ongoing experimental treatment. Gradually, Stella motivates Will to live her life to the fullest, but can she ultimately save the person she loves when even one touch is forbidden?
