An elite team of Scout Rangers track down lawless Islamist elements in the Southern tip of the Philippines. In the middle of this conflict, two Muslim brothers are caught up in their own Holy Wars. A young Muslim scholar, Omar, has followed his brother Jamiluddin’s footsteps into radical Islam. Unbeknownst to him, Jamiluddin has turned Government informant.
Jamiluddin agrees to take the Scout Rangers, led by Sgt. Calayan, to the terrorist camp so he could take his brother away from the warzone. As Sgt. Calayan and his team close in, Omar becomes aware of Jamiluddin’s betrayal, which leads to dire consequences for both the Scout Rangers and the terrorists.
“Ang Araw sa Likod Mo (The Sun Behind You)” is a story about the heroism, redemption, and sacrifice of all sides of the conflict. From Military to refugee camp, a 4-decade old war is brought to light and casts a shadow to the question of what exactly we are fighting for, and who.
