From the twitter handle of The Ministry of Defense who collaborated with the movie production team to bring out this block buster by providing equipment and logistic, confirmed that the movie is based on true stories shared by officers.
It showcases activities of the military through the motion picture by exploring the often tragic, yet gallant fight for life, peace and national unity by the military. The ultimate goal of this movie is to show Nigerians the efforts of this service in nation building and for us also to know what they go through and the sacrifices they make, and also to see reasons why they are out there day and night in defense of our country.
It is definitely a movie to look out for, because it is way different from the normal movie out of Nollywood and because it introduces us a whole new life some of us are not familiar with.
