FULL MOVIE: ‘Eskapo’ is a gripping story based on true events

What would it take for two political prisoners to escape a maximum security prison under Martial Law? Possibly everything.

Helmed by Chito S. Roño, “Eskapo” tells the story of how Eugenio "Geny" Lopez Jr. (Christopher de Leon) and Sergio "Serge" Osmeña III (Richard Gomez) escaped their prison cell in Fort Bonifacio after being wrongly accused of failed assassination attempts against then-President Ferdinand Marcos. 

At first, their families tried to negotiate their freedom through diplomatic means but the administration refused to heed their pleas. Geny and Serge then staged a hunger strike to break out of their sentences, but that plan also failed. Ultimately, after having been in prison for five years, they join forces to hatch a desperate plan to escape.
