Plot Summary: Based on Gayle Forman's novel of the same name. "If I Stay" is the story of the gifted classical musician Mia and her boyfriend, Adam, an up and coming indie-rock star. Torn between two paths in life, her art or her relationship, Mia is forced to make an even starker choice between life and death when she is caught in a fatal car accident with her family one snowy morning in Oregon.

Coming Soon!

Even if the movie is slightly corny, and low-budget, it will never compare to what my imagination has already made the characters up to be in my head. The movie is an after thought, the book is where it all started.
