Naomi (Neta Riskin, Norman) is a Mossad agent sent to Germany to protect Mona (Golshifteh Farahani, Paterson), a Lebanese informant, in Eran Riklis’ (Lemon Tree) international espionage thriller.
Together for two weeks in a quiet Hamburg apartment, the two women develop a tense relationship that is by turns complicated, dangerous, and alluring. Naomi learns that Mona is close to a Hezbollah leader she once betrayed, and fate takes a surprising turn in this suspense-laden, elegant neo-noir. Also starring Lior Ashkenazi (Foxtrot).
