Based on Nicola Yoon’s best-selling young adult novel of the same name, “Everything, Everything” tells the story of Maddy Whittier (played by Amandla Stenberg), a curious 18-year-old girl who has a disease called severe combined immunodeficiency (SCID aka “bubble baby disease”). Because of her allergy, Maddy cannot leave her house and is under the care of her mother (played by Anika Noni Rose) and her nurse Carla (played by Ana de la Reguera).

“This is my whole world. My nurse, my mom, and my sickness. I’m 18 and I’ve never been outside. If I did, I would probably die,” Maddy narrates at the beginning of the trailer.

Her life changes after Olly Bright (played by Nick Robinson) and his family moved in next door. Despite the barriers between them, the young lovers continue to communicate with each other via text messages and emails as well as showing handwritten notes through the window (that’s some Taylor Swift romance right there).

One day, she decides to run away from home with Olly to see the one thing she loves most – the ocean. But will her sickness put her life in danger? “Dear mom, I know staying in this house keeps me alive but this isn’t living. I want to experience everything, everything,” Maddy writes in her letter.

Featuring Naughty Boy’s track “Runnin'” (ft. Beyoncé and Arrow Benjamin), watch the trailer for the film below:

Helmed by Canadian director Stella Meghie (of “Jean of the Joneses” fame) from a screenplay by J. Mills Goodloe (of “The Age of Adaline” fame), “Everything, Everything” is slated for release on 19th May 2017.
