The film which will be helmed by Adrian Teh, is based on the real events of the Battle of Mogadishu that occurred in 1993, when the Malaysian Battalion (MALBATT) was sent to Somalia as peacekeeping troops, during the height of militia uprising in that country. According to the director, despite this being a high-profile mission, the events surrounding it are lesser known to the general public. With that in mind, they aim to bring to light the role that our Malaysian troops played in this mission, as well as the challenges they faced, and the sacrifices they made.
