UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif., May 2, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Despite an extraordinary condition that prevents her from going in sunlight, 17-year-old Katie Price falls in love against all odds in Global Road Entertainment’s incredibly moving and romantic drama Midnight Sun, available on Digital and the all-new digital movie app Movies Anywhere on June 5, 2018 and on Blu-ray™ Combo Pack, DVD and On Demand on June 19, 2018 from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment.

Katie Price (Bella Thorne) has been sheltered since childhood with a rare disease that makes even the smallest amount of sunlight deadly. During the day she is housebound, but after nightfall, Katie can venture out to the local train station and play her guitar for travelers. One night, her dreams come true when she’s noticed by Charlie (Patrick Schwarzenegger), whom she has secretly admired for years, and decides to hide her condition from him as the two embark on a uniquely powerful romance over one nearly perfect summer.
