Film Synopsis:

“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, 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 Larrañaga.”

Freedom Talk: Death Penalty: Human right & human wrong

Human beings are not infallible. Our prison and justice systems are not infallible. Mistakes can and have been made. And, in maintaining the death sentence, innocent people will be killed, their lives taken away, their families and loved ones as devastated as those of victims we seek to protect. <br /> <br /> Those in the front line facing this issue first hand and in close encounters are human rights lawyers who defend prisoners on the death row. Join us for this session and hear their stories, emotions, conflicts and feelings while defending human beings who have been condemned to die.
