DON'T MAKE ME GO

Drama, Asian Diaspora Stories

When single father Max (John Cho) discovers he has a terminal illness, 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. 

Welcoming director Hannah Marks (Mark, Mary & Some Other People) back to the festival, this original and emotional journey written by Vera Herbert (This Is Us), explores the unbreakable, eternal bond between a father and daughter from both sides of the generational divide, bringing both heart and humor along for the ride.--Cara Cusumano
