GIVE UP TOMORROW
USA, United Kingdom 2011 102 min.
On the Philippine island of Cebu, two sisters leave work and never come home. That night, hundreds of miles away, Paco Larrañaga is at a party surrounded by witnesses. Paco is accused of the rape and murder of the young women. His physical appearance and a past record of petty crime lead the media circus to pounce on him and endorse his death sentence.
A true thriller about the case of Paco Larrañaga. In Spain, more than 200,000 signatures were collected in a cry for his freedom. The case is still open today.
