His name is John Denver Cabungcal, a Grade 8 student. All he really wants is to do well in school and bring good grades home to his mother. But one day, a classmate accuses him of stealing an iPad. After his classmate’s persistent allegation, John Denver snaps and assaults his accuser. Unluckily for him, someone records the incident and posts the video on social media. In just five days, this ordinary farmboy’s life is suddenly overturned.

Based on harrowing true stories, “John Denver Trending” is a report, a cautionary tale that marks out a period in our lives when we allow social media to shape differently the way we see things. Millions of Filipinos, including me, live away from our families because of work. We use social media to keep on communicating. This is why, even if we have one of the slowest internet speeds, everyday we use social media the most. But in recent years, we have begun to witness the danger of social media, particularly to the vulnerable Filipino youth.” Arden Rod Condez
