Sheltered since early childhood, Katie Price (Bella Thorne), now 17, lives with a life-threatening sensitivity to sunlight. During the day she is housebound, having only her father, Jack (Rob Riggle) for company. But it is after dark that Katie’s world opens up, when she ventures out to the local train station to play her guitar for travelers.
One night, she meets Charlie (Patrick Schwarzenegger), an ex-high school all-star athlete, whom she has secretly admired for years. She hides her condition from him and the two begin a uniquely powerful romance. Midnight Sun is a heart-breaking, life-affirming story of young love, of dreams lost and realized, and one (nearly) perfect summer.
