FIVE FEET APART - Trailer #2 - HD (Haley Lu Richardson, Cole Sprouse).
Stella Grant (Haley Lu Richardson) is a cystic fibrosis patient who actively uses social media to cope with her illness and tries to live a normal life. She meets another CF patient, William "Will" Newman (Cole Sprouse), who is at the hospital for a medication trial, in an attempt to get rid of the bacterial infection (B. cepacia) he has in his lungs.
CF patients are strictly kept six feet apart to reduce the risk of cross-infection, as contracting bacterial infections from other CF patients can be dangerous - even life-threatening. Stella is determined to follow the rules, and initially dislikes Will, who likes to break the rules and take dangerous risks sometimes. Stella notices that Will isn't strictly following his treatment regimen and eventually gets him to agree to do so.
Will and Stella begin to fall for each other and secretly go on their first date, eventually ending up at the hospital pool, where they strip to reveal scars from their past surgeries. The next day is Will's birthday and Stella throws him a surprise dinner party with the help of Poe, Stella's best friend and a fellow CF patient.
Poe dies the next day leaving Stella devastated. Initially she pushes away Will. Later realising how Poe didn't get to live his life Stella decides to live her life and go see the lights with Will.
Will and Stella walk over frozen ice. Stella almost dies but Will gives her mouth-to-mouth and saves her.
Stella gets new Lungs. The transplant is successful, and Will learns that Stella did not contract his infection.
When Stella wakes up from her surgery, she sees Will through the glass of her room. He has set up a display of lights outside of her room, saying that his only regret was that she did not get to see the lights, so he brought them to her. He tells her that his drug trial isn't working, and he doesn't want her to have to deal with his eventual death. He gives her a notebook of his drawings of her and confesses his love for her. Will makes her close her eyes, because he says he won't be able to leave if she is looking at him. Stella closes her eyes and Will walks away.
