This peppy spy comedy is a tongue-in-cheek re-imagining of the circumstances surrounding January 19th 2010, when Mahmoud al Mabhouh, a Hamas operative, was assassinated in his Dubai hotel room. Though local police accuse the Mossad, and alleged security footage makes worldwide news, the Mossad have never heard of these agents or this mission. What unfolds is a thrilling scramble to uncover the identity of the assassins, and what part the Mossad has to play in an international conspiracy. Director Emmanuel Naccache, known for his award-winning feature film debut The Jerusalem Syndrome (2008), returns with a raucous fabrication starring Sasson Gabai, Raymonde Amsellem, and supermodel Bar Rafaeli.
