Chen has shared that at the core of Evermind lies the complex relationship between a scientist father and his teenage daughter, torn apart by conflicting ideologies but reluctantly bound together by extraordinary circumstances. Drawing inspiration from the nuanced dynamics between Steve Jobs and his daughter, Chen aims to delve deep into the intricate layers of this powerful familial connection.
