Mia Hall (Chloë Grace Moretz) thought the hardest decision she would ever face would be whether to pursue her musical dreams at Juilliard or follow a different path to be with the love of her life, her rebellious boyfriend, Adam (Jamie Blackley). But when what should have been a carefree family drive takes the lives of her mother Kat (Mireille Enos), her father (Joshua Leonard) and her little brother Teddy (Jakob Davies), everything changes in an instant, and now her own life hangs in the balance as she lies in a coma in the hospital. Caught in limbo between life and death for one revealing day, she flashes back into her past, and has an out-of-body experience as she watches friends and family gather at the hospital. She must make a decision that will not only decide her future, but her ultimate fate.
