Have we ever thought about what a human touch means to us? It is our first form of communication, even before we learn to use words to communicate. It helps us feel emotions when words fall short. Squeezing hands, a gentle caress, playful nudging, brushing a finger on the cheek – all these touches excites us, bring us comfort, bring solace in times of fear, connect us when we are happy. But what if we are deprived of human touch? What if we desperately need a touch from a specific person, but doing so would mean killing that person?
Directed by the debutant Justin Baldoni, Five Feet Apart is a story of Stella and Will, two cystic fibrosis patients who need to maintain a minimum distance of six feet to avoid cross-infection.
