Dakota Fanning stars in this teen weepie based on the novel 'Before I Die' by Jenny Downham. When 17-year-old Tessa (Fanning) is diagnosed with leukaemia, she draws up a 'bucket list' of all the things she wants to do before she dies, including losing her virginity and taking drugs. With the help of her friend Zoey (Kaya Scodelario), she determines to live each day as intensely as possible. But she soon realises that she has omitted something very important from her list: falling in love. And as she gets to know her new neighbour, Adam (Jeremy Irvine), Tessa learns that this could be the biggest adventure of all.
