Netflix has just dropped a new action-packed film trailer for Mosul, an extraordinary story about an elite group of Iraqi soldiers trying to liberate their city from thousands of ISIS militants.

Marvel Cinematic Universe directors Joe and Anthony Russo produced the film while directorial duties went to Matthew Michael Carnahan, an acclaimed screenwriter who is making his directorial debut.

The film is loosely based on a 2017 New Yorker article about the raging battles to dislodge ISIS from their strongholds in the Iraqi city of Mosul, capital of the Nineveh province.

Here’s the quick synopsis:

When ISIS took their homes, their families and their 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 Nineveh 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). Always under constant threat of attack, the specialized unit embarks on a dangerous guerrilla operation, determined to wipe out an enemy base and restore order to the lawless territory.

The movie is shot entirely in Arabic and stars Suhail Dabbach, Adam Bessa, Is'haq Elias, Hayat Kamille, Waleed Elgadi, Thaer Al-Shayei, Ben Affan, and Mohimen Mahbuba.

Mosul will steam on Netflix starting Nov. 26.
