The Space Between You and Me follows Sam, a high school YouTuber with dreams of fame. Though her mother disapproves of her ambitions, film is the only place that Sam feels she can truly express her thoughts and anxieties. When she finds out one of her idols is teaching a mere six hours away, she embarks on a secret road trip with her boyfriend to meet her hero and film a series of videos for her channel. She has imagined an entire narrative for her videos, but—both on the road and at the college—she is forced to re-evaluate the ways in which she presents her online persona and interacts with the people in her life.
