Storyline

As a tropical storm beats down on the island of Cebu, two sisters leave work and never make it home... Simultaneously a murder-mystery and an exposé of endemic corruption in the Philippines today, GIVE UP TOMORROW looks intimately at the case of Paco Larrañaga, a student accused of killing two sisters in July 1997. In a way that is both specific to the country and disquietingly universal, the film exposes a Kafkaesque extravaganza populated by flamboyantly crooked public officials, cops on the take, and a frenzied legal and media circus. GIVE UP TOMORROW is also an intimate family drama focused on the near mythic struggle of two angry, sorrowful mothers who have dedicated more than a decade to executing or saving one young man. Written by Thoughtful Robot Productions

I implore you to help!
15 January 2013 | by (Columbia, Missouri) – See all my reviews

I saw this film two years ago as a secret screening at the True/False Film Festival. It was easily my favorite documentary that year, and one which will leave you disturbed long after the credits have rolled. The film outlines the arrest and conviction of Paco Larranaga and several other young men in the murder of two young girls. As the director peels the layers back on the story, more and more you see how the entire situation is a complete miscarriage of justice. This film will leave you feeling not unlike the Paradise Lost documentaries about the West Memphis Three. As someone who is poor and has little to no power, I implore anyone reading this to watch the film, get involved and help free a young man who had absolutely nothing to do with these crimes. I urge you to do your own research if you are skeptical, as some might think because the director is related to the convicted man. I watch documentaries with an avid passion, but few have left me so emotional as Give Up Tomorrow. A must see!
