Inspired by an incredible true story, “Clouds” is a vibrant ode to the life of singer/songwriter Zach Sobiech (Fin Argus). Zach is a seventeen-year-old, fun-loving student with raw musical talent living with osteosarcoma, a rare bone cancer. At the start of his senior year, he is ready to take on the world, however when he receives the news that the disease has spread, he and his best friend and songwriting partner, Sammy (Sabrina Carpenter), decide to spend Zach’s limited time following their dreams.
With the help of Zach’s mentor and teacher, Mr. Weaver (Lil Rel Howery), Zach and Sammy are given the chance of a lifetime and are offered a record deal. Along with the support of the love of his life, Amy (Madison Iseman) and his parents, Rob and Laura (Tom Everett Scott and Neve Campbell); Zach embarks on an unforgettable journey about friendship, love and the power of music.
As his health worsens, Zach realizes that no matter how he spends his last days, he is going to hurt the people he’s closest to, including the love of his life, Amy. Ultimately, he discovers the best way to say goodbye is through song. A raw, beautiful look at the duality of life, “Clouds” reveals the unforgettable journey that brought Zach’s music into the homes and hearts of millions.
The movie will make you look at life differently. As one of the quotes in the movie is “you don’t have to find out you’re dying to start living.” The movie looks at life on how to treasure every day and every moment you have on this earth, because you’re never guaranteed the next day. It’s a sad movie but also full of bittersweet, heart aching, tear wrenching, moments.
“Clouds” is now streaming exclusively on Disney+.
