I hadn't known much about the film before I had watched it. But honestly, it's beautiful!

Based on a real life story, it depicts the love story of Stella and Will, who are cystic fibrosis patients. They are, therefore, required to be at least six feet apart in order to not be infected by cross-infection. While Stella is too strict with the rules, Will is a rule breaker. Though she dislikes him at first for this, she eventually softens.

Later, when Stella's friend and a CF patient, Poe, dies, she laments that she couldn't even hug him before death. This makes her want to live here life to the fullest and thereby, she urges Will to take her along to see the city lights. Later, Will comes to know that a lung transplant is available for her but she denied it. Will then tries to convince her for it. But an unfortunate incidence lands them back to the hospital.

When Stella is lying on the hospital bed, she sees that numerous lights are shining outside the room. Will tells her that he had fulfilled her dream of watching the city lights. He had brought them inside because they couldn't see them together before. As Will walks away for her good, leaving her a scrapbook, Stella realises his love for her.. But Will is gone forever

from her life and she could never meet him again!

This movie gives an insight to our priorities and how we need to reevaluate them in order to live our life fully. Sometimes, even restrictions must be broken, because life, is always uncertain and you never know what's next!
