An American remake of an Israeli film about three Mossad agents who are haunted by the events of their past. Given a highly dangerous mission to capture and bring to trial a Nazi war criminal known as “The Surgeon of Birkenau”, the three agents are out of place and out of their depths. Still haunted by something that happened in a small apartment in East Berlin so many years ago, Rachel, David and Stefan each try to deal with the consequences and resonance of a very troubling past.

The espionage thriller begins in 1997, as shocking news reaches retired Mossad secret agents Rachel (Helen Mirren) and Stefan (Tom Wilkinson) about their former colleague David (Ciarán Hinds). All three have been venerated for decades by their country because of the mission that they undertook back in 1966, when the trio (portrayed, respectively, by Jessica Chastain, Marton Csokas, and Sam Worthington) tracked down Nazi war criminal Vogel (Jesper Christensen) in East Berlin. At great risk, and at considerable personal cost, the team's mission was accomplished - or was it? The suspense builds in and across two different time periods, with startling action and surprising revelations.
