How do you tell your daughter you are dying and the surgery option is extremely risky when the two of you are a team? Maybe you just try to cram as much love, support, and special moments into the time you have left instead. That is what single dad Max (John Cho) faces in Don't Make Me Go, coming to Prime Video on July 15. Get a glimpse of how in a just-released trailer, below.

The feature film directed by Hannah Marks from a screenplay by Vera Herbert follows Max and his teenage daughter Wally (Mia Isaac) on a cross-country road trip from California to New Orleans for his 20th college reunion (but also so he can reunite her with her mother, who left them years before). 

At first she fights the trip because it's summer and she wants to spend it with her boyfriend, but he promises to teach her to drive, which causes her to relent.

"If you have a good attitude for real, I'll let you get behind the wheel," Max says in the trailer.

Oh, Max.

But more seriously, he wants her to "look back on this trip remembering you and I spending time together."

On the trip, they of course grow closer, with her starting to see how bad his health is getting and be concerned he's having a midlife crisis, while he tries to impart as much wisdom as possible.

The film also stars Mitchell Hope, Jemaine Clement, Stefania LaVie Owen, and Kaya Scodelario. It is produced by Donald De Line, Leah Holzer, and Peter Saraf.
