What Is the Plot of Five Feet Apart?
Follows two cystic fibrosis patients, Cole Sprouse and Stella (Haley Lu Richardson). When it comes to Will, though, he refuses to comply to the established rules and regulations. Because of this, Stella first dislikes Will, but the two gradually fall in love with each other.
The only problem is that they can’t get too close to each other because of their sickness. Five feet apart, the two of them embark on a date. She is devastated by the loss of her best friend Poe and decides that if she is going to die, she doesn’t want to live her life with boundaries.
What Happened in The Ending of Five Feet?
What Happened to Stella and Will?
The film’s characters, Stella and Will, are not dead.
Stella’s sister Abby (Sofia Bernard) and Poe, her boyfriend and CFer’s best friend, also killed (Moises Arias).
Abby, Stella’s Sister, What Happened to Abby??
Despite the fact that Abby died before to the events shown in the film, her demise was kept a secret for the duration of the film. We were first introduced to Abby thanks to her stunning artwork. Flowers and butterflies were used to create an abstract pair of floating lungs.
For Stella to live a long life, she needs new lungs. Abby quickly became Stella’s pillar of strength, taking her to the operating room and helping her fall asleep while she underwent surgery. There is no doubt that the two women are linked.
Abby’s social media profiles have been silent for months, and Stella seems ashamed and evasive whenever she is asked about her.
Will only learned of Abby’s death from Stella after she confessed to him that she had died a year earlier in a diving accident. When Stella’s CF flared up on her without warning, she had to pull out of the trip with Abby. When Abby’s love life turned sour, she fell and broke her back, eventually succumbing to her injuries and dying.
Stella is remorseful for not being there for her sister when she passed away.
Will and Stella are both killed in this story?
Both Stella and Will, the two characters of the film, remain alive and well despite the film’s conclusion.
Stella’s sister, Abby (Sofia Bernard), and Poe, her best friend and CFer’s partner, both died (Moises Arias).
Is There a Transmission of Disease?
For the most part, Stella avoided Will, but when the two went for a walk the night before Poe died, Stella tripped and fell. It’s cold in the pond. To save his own life, Will is compelled to do mouth-to-mouth resuscitation.
After a remarkable test, Stella was found to be free of Will’s virus, but she was warned that she could potentially become infected in the future.
In the End, What Was Fate’s Plan for Them?
After the freezing pond incident, Stella received a much-needed lung transplant, which gave her hope for a better and healthier future.
That wasn’t the case for Will, however. His CF and B. Cepacia had been treated with experimental drugs, but they had proved ineffectual. When it came to a transplant, he wasn’t even on the list. He is aware that the clock is ticking.
During Stella’s rehabilitation from the transplant, they were separated by a glass partition, and Will wept as he told her farewell and told her she had to go on without him through a glass wall. Their devotion was acknowledged in a harrowing scene.
Although Will is ill, we have yet to see him succumb to his illness. “The creators purposely left the ending ambiguous so that the spectator may form their own conclusions,” Cole Sprouse said in a recent interview with Refinery29.
