Based on the novel of the same name by Gayle Forman, the romantic drama film was adapted into a screenplay by Shauna Cross and directed by R. J. Cutler. "If I Stay" opened in theaters in the United States on August 22, 2014.

She's given 24 hours to observe the life around her in an out-of-body experience, as well as the choice whether she lives or dies. With a lot at stake for her life, Mia finds this decision overwhelming, to say the least.
