LET ME HAVE MY SON the movie is based on the book by the same title, described by best-selling author Robert Whitlow as the “poignant and powerful cry of a father who refuses to abandon hope when all hope is gone.”
Ben Whitmore Sr. (Cristóbal Krusen) is awakened early one morning to learn that his son, Benny (Nathan Barlow), after years of treatment for schizophrenia, is ready for discharge from Middlemouth Security Hospital. Giddy with excitement, Ben travels to Middlemouth to bring Benny home. Instead, he discovers that Benny has gone missing, triggering an increasingly desperate search for answers within the labyrinthine hospital complex. This award-winning film is based on the true story of the writer-director’s compelling journey with his firstborn son, Daniel.
