In the movie How I Live Now, Saoirse Ronan plays the role of a young girl named Daisy who is sent to live with her distant relatives in the countryside of England. Her new family includes her aunt Penn, played by Anna Chancellor, and her cousins Isaac, Edmond, and Piper, played by George MacKay, Tom Holland, and Harley Bird, respectively.

Initially, Daisy is reluctant to engage with her new family and spends most of her time alone. However, as the days pass, she begins to form close bonds with her cousins, especially Edmond, whom she develops romantic feelings for.

Just as Daisy is starting to feel at home in her new surroundings, a world war breaks out and England falls under attack. The family is forced to separate, and Daisy and Piper are evacuated to safety while Isaac and Edmond stay behind to fight.

Daisy and Piper wander through the war-torn countryside, desperately trying to stay alive and find safety. They encounter other survivors along the way, including a group of children who have formed their own community in the woods.

Throughout the movie, Daisy becomes increasingly protective of Piper, and the two rely on each other for survival. The bond between the two girls grows stronger as they face numerous challenges over the course of their journey.

Meanwhile, back in the city, Isaac and Edmond are struggling to survive and stay together amid the chaos of war. As the situation around them continues to deteriorate, they are forced to make difficult decisions that put their lives on the line.

As the war intensifies, Daisy and Piper's journey becomes more perilous, and they must rely on their own resourcefulness and the support of the other survivors they meet along the way to stay alive. The movie builds to an emotional climax that leaves Daisy questioning what is truly important in life and making her realize just how much her new family means to her.

Overall, How I Live Now is a harrowing tale of survival, love, and the bonds of family set against the backdrop of a world on the brink of destruction. Saoirse Ronan's performance is outstanding, and the chemistry between her and her co-stars is palpable. The movie is a must-watch for fans of dystopian films and those who love a good coming-of-age tale.
