Haley Lu Richardson and Cole Sprouse in 'Five Feet Apart'.

Seventeen-year-old Stella spends most of her time in the hospital as a cystic fibrosis patient. Her life is full of routines, boundaries and self-control - all of which get put to the test when she meets Will, an impossibly charming teen who has the same illness. There’s an instant flirtation, though restrictions dictate that they must maintain a safe distance between them. As their connection intensifies, so does the temptation to throw the rules out the window and embrace that attraction.

Five Feet Apart is written by Mikki Daughtry and Tobias Iaconis and directed by Justin Baldoni. The film stars Haley Lu Richardson and Cole Sprouse and is based on the novel of the same name by Rachael Lippincott and contributors Mikki Daughtry and Tobias Iaconis. The film’s title refers to the ‘six-foot rule’, a guideline from the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation which states that cystic fibrosis patients should be kept at least six feet apart to lower the risk of cross-infection.
