After a diagnosis of terminal cancer early in her teens, Hazel considers herself a time bomb waiting to blow up in the faces of the people who love her. Then she meets Augustus at a cancer support group. The two teenagers who share an acerbic wit, a disdain for the conventional, and a love that sweeps them on a journey. Their relationship is all the more miraculous given that Hazel's other constant companion is an oxygen tank, Gus jokes about his prosthetic leg, and they met and fell in love at a cancer support group.
Based on the best-selling novel by John Green, this film tackles love, death, and what happens in between. Okay? Okay.
