Having only her father Jack (Riggle) for company, Katie’s world opens up after dark when she ventures outside to play her guitar.
One night, her dreams come true when she’s noticed and asked out by her longtime crush Charlie (Schwarzenegger), whom she’s secretly watched from her bedroom window for years. As they embark on nightly summer excursions, Katie’s risk to sunlight grows and she’s presented with the gut-wrenching dilemma of whether she can live a normal life with her newfound soul mate.
