Don’t Go is the story of a soldier who discovers what it means to be a man, a father, and ultimately, a hero. Called to serve as an army surgeon in Afghanistan, Dr. Scanlon is acutely aware of the dangers he’ll face and the hardships it will cause his wife and newborn daughter. Ironically, while he is saving wounded soldiers in a war-torn country, his wife dies in their suburban kitchen, the victim of an apparent household accident. A gripping, thrilling and profoundly emotional story.
