“Midnight Sun” is the story of Katie Price, played by Bella Thorne, who has an extremely rare disease that prevents her from being in the sunlight or else she could die. Katie lives a very sheltered life due to the disease, but the highlight of her day everyday was when she would see the boy from down the street, Charlie, played by Patrick Schwarzenegger, skateboard by her house. Over 10 years from the first time Katie saw Charlie out her window, she finally meets him. The two fall in love, even though Katie doesn’t reveal her disease to Charlie. Eventually, the truth comes out the two continue to try and make their relationship work.
