Movie Info

The harrowing story of Paco Larrañaga, a young man falsely accused of the murder of two Chinese-Filipino girls. Despite being surrounded by dozens of witnesses, Paco is taken into custody and faced with the possibility of a death sentence. A nationwide media frenzy descends upon his imprisonment, and even though he was on Manila island hundreds of miles away from the murders, Paco is blamed. Coming from a traditional powerful race and caste of Filipino society, Paco plays the much sought-after role of villain. With two groups of class and race profiled as victims and perpetrators and the media speculating on print daily, the case sees an unprecedented amount of extra-judicial attention. No matter how hard Paco fights, and how the victims' families fight, the media circus will not back down and the country is gripped. In a mix of journalism and back-door politics, Give Up Tomorrow examines the corrupt and unimaginable Filipino legislative system. Paco's landmark case may have changed the laws on capital punishment, but he is still incarcerated for life. With interviews from the families of the victims and the Larrañaga family itself, to journalist, drug dealers, and police officers, Give Up Tomorrow offers an unseen glimpse into the surreal world of the Philippines' crime and punishment.

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (1) | Fresh (5)

  • Mr. Collins's treatment, though jam packed, leaves one itching to understand more about the bigger picture and the political and social connections involved.

    Oct 1, 2012 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • This documentary about Filipino injustice functions as a sort of companion piece to the 'West Memphis Three' trilogy: This, too, is a story about a young man convicted by a corrupt political system of a murder he didn't commit.

    Nov 17, 2011 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • A stunning, unforgiving indictment of the corrupt justice system of the Philippines, GUT is as powerful as its acronym implies - it's a gut punch.

    Aug 17, 2011 | Rating: 3.5/5
  • A tale so outrageous, unjust and unbelievable that it could only be true.

    An unbelievable and revolting real story about an absurdly horrendous injustice suffered by a young man who has been trying to win a fight for over fifteen years now against powerful people who wanted to see him executed despite every indisputable evidence of his innocence.
