You're in for a white-knuckle ride in this political thriller, which created tremendous buzz at Toronto, has won 12 nominations from the Israeli Film Academy, and is poised to earn more awards. It chronicles the complex relationship between an Israeli Secret Service officer and his teenage Palestinian informant. Shuttling back and forth between conflicting points of view, the film is an intense look at characters torn apart by competing loyalties and impossible moral dilemmas, giving an unparalleled glimpse into the dark world of human intelligence. Official Oscar entry from Israel.
