This May, Vivamax proudly presents Fall Guy, a socially relevant movie by no less than the legendary director Joel Lamangan, starring Sean De Guzman who has been hailed Best Actor at the Chithiram International Film Festival in India and at the Anatolian Film Awards in Turkey.

Sean plays Julius Sumpay, a boy who grows up in the slums of Manila.

He serves as caretaker of the Garcia ancestral home where his mother Lourdes (Shamaine Buencamino) also works as a housemaid.

Being exposed to the extravagant life of his boss, Fonzy (Vance Larena) and his friends, Julius also yearns to be part of their world despite his mother’s constant reminder to avoid their company.

But where Fonzy goes, Julius goes.

He gets to have a drink at their party and make out with some girl that’s out of his league, somehow making him feel like he belongs.

But one fateful night, it becomes very clear that he is not.

Julius wakes up naked, beside the dead body of Jenie (Cloe Barreto), who is gang raped and dies in the hands of Fonzy and his friends.

Set up by the boys, Julius finds himself arrested for a crime he didn’t commit.

Fall Guy is a realistic portrayal of what goes on in the society where the rich uses their power to get away with anything while the wrongly accused poor souls suffer and struggle immensely to clear their name.

In the case of Julius, will anyone ever listen to his cry for justice and give it to him even as Jenie’s mother Beth (Glydel Mercado) cries for the same thing?

Fall Guy also stars Marco Gomez, Glydel Mercado, Tina Paner, Quinn Carrillo, Mark Cardona, Tiffany Grey, Hershie de Leon, Jim Pebanco and more.

It is available for streaming on Vivamax starting May 12.
