A GRIPPING ESPIONAGE THRILLER
Premiered at the Berlinale 2015
Five Israeli citizens find themselves plunged into a gripping international espionage affair overnight. These ordinary people, going about their daily business, wake up one morning to discover that they are implicated in a ruthless kidnapping operation following the disappearance of the Iranian Defense Minister while on a secret visit to Moscow. News bulletins repeatedly flash their names and passport photos on screen, linking them to video footage from the kidnapping. Their attempts at denial, followed laughter, indifference and anger are all in vain. The coverage turns their lives upside down and sweeps them up a storm of publicity and speculation. They are Israels new heroes of the day, the subjects of the nations curiosity, mockery and admiration all at the same time. At first, everyone is convinced that Mossad was behind the showy operation the methods, audacity and location leave no room for doubt. But then the five civilians are stunned to discover that the government, which is supposed to protect them, as well as the Mossad itself, denies all involvement and accuses them as suspects. Instead of helping them, the authorities persecute, investigate and point fingers. Even their loved ones begin to doubt their innocence. Could they really have been involved?
