Akinabalu is a Malaysian 'Band Of Brothers' style epic about a group of British soldiers in Sandakan - the now infamous East Malasyian prisoner of war camp - and the struggle of the local supporters ready to give their lives to help those imprisoned.
Gavin plays Edward Keene, a British engineer living in the Jungle of East Malaysia during World War II. Growing increasingly accustomed to the local way of life he falls in love with a local village chief's daughter, Berida (Dira Abu Zahar). As the invasion progresses Edward struggles to balance the high stakes of protecting his anonymity from the Japanese forces - keeping all he holds dear safe, with being the only man able to organise the aid being smuggled into Sandakan for the detained Allied forces.
