Synopsis

Razi and Sanfur are so close, they almost forget how they met: Razi works for the Israeli secret service. Sanfur is his asset - a young Palestinian informer.
One day Razi is charged with engineering the assassination of the most wanted militant in the West Bank: the leader of Bethlehem's Al-Aqsa Martyr's Brigade...and Sanfur's older brother, Ibrahim. In the frantic and bloody siege, the Israeli Army's mission is accomplished and Ibrahim is killed. Al-Aqsa vows to avenge his death with a dramatic attack deep inside Israel and a grieving Sanfur is recruited to help.
With Sanfur's defection, Razi's career is on the line. Both he and Sanfur face an impossible dilemma, unsure whom they can trust. Will they protect each other or choose sides?
