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. During 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.
