The story of the upcoming drama narrows the story of Natasha, a young woman who fell in love with Daniel. However, their love does not seem to have a 'happy ending', because they have met each other a couple of hours before Natasha and her family find out that they've been deported and they have to go back to Jamaica. The story is an adaptation of Nicola Yoon's novel, the author who has also published 'Everything, Everything', the book that was adapted for the big-screen starring Amanda Stenberg and Nick Robinson. The movie is directed by Ry Russo-Young. The cast is formed by Yara Shahidi ('Black-ish'), Charles Melton ('Riverdale'), Gbenga Akinnagbe ('The Deuce') and Jake Choi ('Single Parents'), among others.
