The movie opens with three people exiting a plane in Israel in 1966. A female voice identifies them as Mossad secret agents Rachel Singer, David Peretz, and Stephan Gold.
The spy thriller quickly fast-forwards to present day, and it is revealed that the voice belongs to Singer’s daughter. The voice continues giving information about the scene, and while it would seem that Singer should be paying attention to her daughter, it becomes clear that her mind is somewhere else. The movie goes back and forth between Singer’s mission days and the days of fame that followed the particular incident Singer wouldn’t be able to escape in the future.Related Movie
Singer and her fellow agents’ mission was to find the Surgeon of Birkenau, a Nazi war criminal, and bring him back to Israel to face trial for killing thousands of Jews in the Holocaust. Things get tricky when the mission fails and Dieter Vogul, “the Surgeon” escapes. Singer, Peretz, and Gold each take a vow to keep his escape a secret and later claim that the notorious “Surgeon” had been killed.
30 years later, the agents are faced with a grave decision: they can either let the truth come out or finish the mission they started so many years ago in Berlin.
The film, adapted from the 2007 Israeli film Ha-Hov, contains startling graphic action.
