A lot can happen in two weeks. Stella Grant and Will Newman meet and are drawn to each other when they are both in hospital for their cystic fibrosis. To stay safe and not put their health and life on the line they must always stay six feet apart. But maybe they can steal back a bit and only stay five feet apart. 

Grief and friendship
