This sleek and intelligently crafted high-concept Israeli thriller presents a masterclass in wringing breathless tension. The story follows a determined young officer in Israel’s elite military intelligence unit, whose daily task involves listening in on the family of a suspected terrorist. But her routine takes an abrupt turn when she is suddenly thrust into a race against the clock to find a captured Israeli soldier hidden in Gaza. When Israel is faced with a prisoner swap that includes the man who killed her dad, she will stop at nothing to keep her father’s killer from freedom.
The special premiere event will feature producer Ilan Arboleda in attendance to introduce the film and participate in a Q&A afterward.
