Plot summary

What is Five Feet Apart movie plot?

Here is a short review of "Five Feet Apart" movie plot summary.

Two teenagers, Stella Grant (Haley Lu Richardson) and Will Newman (Cole Sprouse) both have a genetic disease known as Cystic Fibrosis (CF). Two people with CF must not get closer than six feet to prevent cross-infection. Stella, determined to make it out of the hospital one day, is strict with her medication. Will prefers to slack off and avoid his responsibilities, angering her. Will, who has contracted B. Cepacia, is part of a new drug trial, and does not have a lung transplant for him, while Stella has been on the transplant list for a long time. She later finds out that Will is not doing his treatments, and tries to help him. In return, Will only asks her for permission to draw a picture of her. Over time, they begin doing their treatments together. Will and Stella fall in love, but can't get closer than six feet of each other.
Stella's G-tube later gets infected and she has to undergo surgery to get it replaced. Stella's sister, Abby, who was normally with Stella during surgery, died from a botched daredevil stunt. This has left Stella with severe survivor's guilt, who now faces surgery alone. Will, having learned about Abby's death, goes to accompany Stella and sings her the song Abby would always sing her before surgery.
As Will leaves Stella's surgical prep room, he is caught by a nurse named Barb. Barb tells him a story about two people with CF who fell in love with each other; both of whom died from being near each other and cross contracting each other's bacteria. Will does not want to hurt Stella, so he says he can not see her anymore. Stella becomes upset and angry. She later plans an attempt to meet Will. She decides to take back one foot that CF had stolen from her. She carries around a pool stick which measures exactly five feet; keeping her and Will five feet apart at all times.
