John Cho is back on the big screen, and this time he is bringing us a heartbreaking story of human connection in his latest film, Don’t Make Me Go.
Don’t Make Me Go, follows single father Max (John Cho) who discovers he has a terminal disease. Max decides to try and cram all the years of love and support he will miss with his teenage daughter Wally (Mia Isaac) into the time he has left with her. With the promise of long-awaited driving lessons, he convinces Wally to accompany him on a road trip from California to New Orleans for his 20th college reunion, where he secretly hopes to reunite her with her mother who left them long ago. A wholly original, emotional and surprising journey, Don’t Make Me Go explores the unbreakable, eternal bond between a father and daughter from both sides of the generational divide with heart and humor along for the ride.
