The pic follows 17-year-old Zach, Sobiech's son, whose diagnosed a second time with Osteosarcoma, a rare form of pediatric bone cancer, but this time it's terminal. In the months leading up to his death, he finds the courage to date and fall in love with his dream girl, Amy and despite waves of sorrow and guilt knowing he's leaving his loved ones behind and in pain, he writes a song saying goodbye and to thank all the people who stood by him.

The movie will be released in 2020 by Warner Bros Pictures.
I *think* it was maybe in the first 15 minutes, but I had the conversation quite a few months ago now so I'm not 100% sure. But he was talking about his past collaboration with the director, and how it had led to this new project Clouds which was even more exciting to him.
