Ahead of its February 11th debut, Apple TV+ has shared a first look at "The Sky Is Everywhere," its upcoming drama film.

In an Entertainment Weekly exclusive, the outlet talked to director Josephine Decker about the film. Decker talks about how he wants audiences to feel every emotion possible when watching it:

"I always wanted to make a film where you experience every emotion — where you laugh and cry, find tension and release, feel sexy, feel scared. And I adore magical realism. I love how Jandy's script holds comedy alongside tragedy, how she lets us be inside of the playful awkwardness and thrill of first love alongside the raw reality of grief. And she lets us inside of Lennie's wild imagination."

Decker also reflected on one of the most emotionally-charged scenes they had to shoot during filming:

"When we shot the first take, I remember bawling — truly bawling...The reality of grief had stepped into us. It was exhausting and also very profound. The challenge was letting the film live its widest range — being rich with the fullness of life and play and love and possibility and imagination and poetry and hilarity and comedy and magic, and also with the profundity of loss and sorrow and anger and confusion and longing. We wanted the film to hold those polarities as organically as the book had."

The drama film tells the story of Lennie Walker, a musical prodigy who struggles with the loss of her older sister.

Tucked among the magical redwood trees of Northern California and surrounded by her grandmother's gargantuan roses, 17-year-old Lennie Walker, a radiant musical prodigy, struggles with overwhelming grief following the sudden loss of her older sister, Bailey. When Joe Fontaine, the charismatic new guy at school, enters Lennie's life, she's drawn to him. But Lennie's complicated relationship with her sister's devastated boyfriend, Toby, starts to affect Lennie and Joe's budding love. Through her vivid imagination and honest, conflicted heart, Lennie navigates first love and first loss to create a song of her own. Acclaimed filmmaker Josephine Decker directs this moving adaptation of the beloved novel of the same name.

"The Sky Is Everywhere" will premiere on Apple TV+ and in select theaters on Friday, February 11.
