A father. A daughter. A terminal illness. A road trip. If story of the film Don’t Make Me Go isn’t a recipe for tears, I don’t know what is.
Ahead of its world premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival on June 13, Don’t Make Me Go features John Cho as a single father who discovers he has a terminal disease. He 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.
Don’t Make Me Go is directed by Hannah Marks and written by Vera Herbert. The cast also features Mitchell Hope, Jemaine Clement, Stefania LaVie Owen, and Kaya Scodelario.
