John Cho takes viewers on an emotional ride in the newly released trailer for Amazon Studio’s “Don’t Make Me Go,” an upcoming film about a terminally ill father making the most out of the time he has left with his daughter.
John Cho and Mia Isaac play Max and Wally, the father-daughter duo in the tearjerker directed by rising director Hannah Marks. Vera Herbert, known for NBC’s “This is Us” and MTV’s “Awkward,” serves as the film’s writer.
The synopsis for “Don’t Make Me Go” reads:
“When single father Max 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 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.”
The bittersweet dramedy is slated to premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival on June 13 before premiering on Prime Video on July 15.
