Greg Gaines (Thomas Mann) is a high school student who is trying to get through his final year of high school. His way of getting along without drawing too much attention to himself is to be friendly with every social group at school, but in a superficial way, so that they think he's a cool guy, but don't get too friendly.

When his mother finds out that Rachel (Olivia Cooke), one of his classmates, has leukemia, she forces him to spend time with her. They slowly develop a friendship of sorts and he lets her watch the movies he and his best friend Earl (Ronald Cyler II) have made.

  • 5 stars "Excellent! Best movie I've seen in a long time!"
  • 5 stars "This film is remarkably good. How refreshing to have a film about young adults that is neither patronizing nor formulaic. There is fine acting, by unknown actors, depicting real life characters in poignant and sensitive situations. It moves from being very funny to sadness without being cloying or forced. Excellent movie."
  • 5 stars "Absolutely brilliant ! Superbly written, directed, acted and filmed. Heart rendering depiction of life, love and tragedy."
