Based on true events, the film recounts the final days of the Spanish Empire’s last colony. Fifty men were sent to reclaim the village of Baler (the Philippines) where, against all odds, the soldiers manage to hold off an army of native Tagalogs for nearly a year. An epic and true military story which combines adventure, amazing characters and enthralling exotic locations.
“[..] its purely cinematic qualities make it deserving of offshore exposure.”
