The Battle of Surabaya back in 1945 has inspired the MSV production house to produce a 2D animated movie that follows the adventure of a 13-year-old shoe shiner, Musa, who sacrifices everything to help the freedom fighters.
In the movie, titled Battle of Surabaya, Musa serves as a courier, assigned to deliver secret messages on tactics and strategy during the battle, which broke out on Nov. 10, 1945. Along the way, the boy has to overcome many problems and ordeals to complete his missions.
The film aimed to convey a message of peace, humanity and heroism to people through Musa’s inner journey. That every person has the chance to become a hero. – from Aryanto Yuniawan (film Director) – Jakarta Post.
