Zac and Mia is described as a moving story about two ordinary teenagers who find hope, love and courage in exceptional circumstances. In the real world, these two 17-year-olds would have little to say to each other, but in the hospital where both are undergoing treatment for cancer, the usual rules no longer apply.

Lawley recently starred in Awesomeness Films’ Before I Fall and Tyler Perry’s Boo! A Madea Halloween. Winters had starring roles in FX’s Tyrant and ABC’s Wicked City.
