An elite police unit made up almost entirely of native sons of Mosul, Iraq's second-largest city, fight to liberate the city from 6,000 ISIS militants who overran it in 2014.

When ISIS took their homes, families and city, one group of men fought to take it all back. After inexperienced Iraqi cop Kawa (Adam Bessa) is rescued from a harrowing firefight by the elite Ninevah SWAT team, he's quickly inducted into the rogue squadron, a band of ten brothers-in-arms led by the wise Major Jasem (Suhail Dabbach). Under constant threat of attack, the unit embarks on a dangerous guerrilla operation, determined to wipe out an enemy base and restore order to the lawless territory. An extraordinary true story of heroism in the face of overwhelming odds,

CITY OF A MILLION SOLDIERS is written and directed by Matthew Michael Carnahan and produced by Anthony and Joe Russo.
