The heroism of the Filipinos who laid down their lives for the freedom of the city of Marawi is commemorated with the film “Ang Misyon: A Marawi Siege Story.”

Starring award-winning actor Martin Escudero, this socio-political, action-packed narrative drama film showcases the current events in Mindanao, specifically in the city of Marawi.


It revolves around the complicated world of the protagonist-antagonist Muslim registered nurse Sajid Tumawil (Escudero), who gets into the socio-political turmoil, instead of just being a staff nurse helping the ill and the sick in his hometown, only to be discovered by the military men that he belongs to the extremist groups of Maute Islamiyah having a bipolar personality.


Escudero, a product of a television reality talent search, has been acclaimed for his portrayal in the indie film “Zombadings: Patayin Sa Shokot Si Remington,” wherein it won the 10th Gawad Tanglaw Best Actor and 9th EnPress Golden Screen Awards Best Actor for Comedy.

Its director, Ceasar Soriano, also stars in the film alongside Rez Cortez, Lou Veloso, Jordan Castillo, Tanya Gomez, Darius Razon, Cloyd Robinson, Mia Mendiola, Jack Falcis, Bong Russo, Chamberlaine Uy, Al Flores, John Michael Wagnon, Tim Sawyer, China Roces, and introducing Juan Miguel Sorian.

“Ang Misyon: A Marawi Siege Story,” produced by GreatCzar Media Productions and distributed by ABS-CBN Films – CineScreen, opens May 30 in cinemas nationwide.
