Set during the Philippine-American war, a short-tempered Filipino general faces an enemy more formidable than the American army: his own treacherous countrymen.
In 1898, General Antonio Luna (John Arcilla), commander of the revolutionary army, is spoiling for a fight. The Philippines, after three hundred years as a Spanish colony, has unwillingly come under American rule.
General Luna wants to fight for freedom but members of the elite would rather strike a deal with the United States.
The infighting is fierce in the new cabinet but General Luna and his loyal men forge ahead even as his military decisions are met with resistance from soldiers who are loyal only to President Aguinaldo (Mon Confiado).
Ultimately, it is the generalís legendary temper and pride that bring him to his death when a pack of presidential guards assassinate him in broad daylight.
While American newspapers are quick to point the blame to Aguinaldo, the mystery has never been completely solved and the Generalís killers were never put to justice.
Directed by Jerrold Tarog.
