Completed 2011 Runtime 90



As a tropical storm beats down on the Philippine island of Cebu, two sisters leave work and never make it home... Give Up Tomorrow exposes a Kafkaesque extravaganza populated by flamboyantly corrupt public officials, drug dealers, cops on the take, and a frenzied legal and media circus. It is also an intimate family drama focused on the near mythic struggle of two angry and sorrowful mothers who have dedicated more than a decade to executing or saving one young man, Paco LarraƱaga.

Outreach Work Supported

In the Philippines, launch of the film to the public, influencer screenings to lobby for legislative change and launch of "Innocence Project".

What people
have said

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.


...leaves one itching to understand more about the bigger picture and the political and social connections involved.
