Mossad agent Naomi (Neta Riskin) is called back from sick leave and assigned to a “babysitting” job. Under a new identity, she heads to Germany to protect Mona (Golshifteh Farahani), a Lebanese informant, who is hidden in a Hamburg safe house while recovering from plastic surgery. Naomi learns that Mona is close to a top Hezbollah leader, a man dead-set on exacting revenge. In this game of deception, beliefs are questioned and choices are made that are not their own.┬áDuring the two weeks they spend together, an unexpected bond forms between the two women and their fate takes a surprising turn in this suspenseful, elegant neo-noir.

Directed by Eran Riklis.
