He Who Is Without Sin

by Jason Paul Laxamana
75 minutes | Drama | 2020 | R16

One evening, Martin, a broadcasting student, is invited for coffee by Lawrence, the TV reporter he idolizes. During the days that follow, Martin shares with his friends separately three versions of what transpired during his meeting with Lawrence: what happened, what really happened, and what might have actually happened. Through conversations with friends, Martin comes to terms with the idea that his idol – a dignified newsman who is supposed to be a paragon of virtue – is not who he appears to be on television. This marks the Sinag Maynila debut of renowned director Jason Paul Laxamana.
