BURBANK, Calif.  (September 9, 2020) – Seventeen-year old Zach Sobiech captured the hearts of people everywhere when his original song “Clouds” debuted and instantly became a viral sensation in 2012.

Along with the support of the love of his life, Amy (Madison Iseman) and his parents, Rob and Laura (Tom Everett Scott and Neve Campbell); Zach embarks on an unforgettable journey about friendship, love and the power of music.
