John Cho is heading to Amazon Prime Video this July in new drama Don’t Make Me Go.
The film, which is directed by Hannah Marks and written by Vera Herbert, co-stars Mia Isaac, with the cast also including Jemaine Clement, Kaya Scodelario, Mitchell Hope and Stefania LaVie Owen. It follows single father Max (John Cho), 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 explores the bond between a father and daughter from both sides of the generational divide. It will have its premiere at the 2022 Tribeca Film Festival, before going on to stream worldwide on Amazon Prime Video on 15th July.
