Her fascination with going outside increases when she has a crush on her new neighbor.
The movie begins by showing the life of Maddy Whittier and the little contact which he has with the outside world. This little contact makes her imagine what it would be like to be out in the world and enjoy the ocean.
Maddy is seen looking out her window when she notices that her new neighbors are moving in. She spots Oliver “Olly” Bright (Nick Robinson) riding on his skateboard, who notices her and both of them exchange a smile. The Robinsons as good neighbors send Oliver and his sister Kara played by Taylor Hickson with Bundt Cake for the Whittiers but Dr. Whitttier, Maddy’s Mom refuses to take as it wasn’t cooked in her home. When Oliver enquires about Maddy, she rudely tells him she is unavailable.
Oliver’s curiosity about Maddy gets her attention and both of them exchange numbers. The two of them get to know each other over texts and start exchanging details about their life. Maddy imagines how amazing it would have been if they could talk while sitting in a diner rather than on texts. She tells him her desires of seeing the ocean.
Carla figures out that Maddy is into Oliver and arranges for them to meet when her mother is away. She invites Olly into the house and both of them spend some much-needed quality time with each other. After they meet, Maddy is again looking out her window when she sees that Oliver gets into a heated argument with his father and it results in a fight. When she sees Oliver’s father hits him she runs out to check on him and is caught by her mother who drags her inside. Maddy becomes sick due to her venture outside which results in her getting scolded. Dr. Whittier gently informs her that she can’t see Oliver anymore.
Dr. Whittier figures out that Oliver was into the house and she fires Carla. Carla has a very emotional goodbye with Maddy. She decided that she wants to see the ocean once and asks Oliver if he would accompany her who tells her that it’s not safe to do this. Maddy assures him that she is taking a medicine which will keep her safe and she has tickets for both of them to go to Hawaii. She leaves a note for her mother informing her she would be gone.
Maddy finally gets to Hawaii and she has Oliver for the company. She buys a swimsuit and experiences the ocean for the first time. The ocean overwhelms her and puts her on cloud nine. This is followed by both of them having a romantic evening.
The next morning Maddy passes out and has to be rushed to the hospital. The next scene shows Maddy waking up at her home next to Dr. Whittier who believes she has learned her lesson. The incident forced Maddy to be away from Oliver.
Oliver moves back to New York City without getting a chance to say goodbye. Maddy gets a call from the doctor who treated her in Hawaii who tells her that she doesn’t have SCID (immunodeficiency disease). Maddy confronts the doctor to confirm his diagnosis. The doctor confirms that she has never had an immunodeficiency disease and her immune system is week because she has never been out in the real world.
Maddy decides to stay away from her mother. When Maddy confronts her mother, she admits mad up the disease because she didn’t want to lose her daughter after she had already lost her husband and her son.
Maddy rushes off to New York City to find Olive who gets her message. Both of them meet in a book store and kiss before embarking on their adventure to explore the city.
