For Henry Page (Austin Abrams), senior year in high school means he will finally get the coveted position of the school newspaper editor. Or so he thinks. Instead, he is asked to share the position with Grace Town (Lili Reinhart), a transfer student with a cane and a don’t-mess-with-me attitude. Falling for her almost immediately, Henry is determined to help her put the pieces of her life back together, but Grace bristles at his attempts to “fix” her.
When Grace finally begins to let her guard down, Henry discovers the heartbreaking secret that has upended her life. As he learns to love Grace for who she really is, he starts to know himself.
