An Israeli secret-service officer becomes an unlikely father figure to his young Palestinian informant, whose loyalties to his militant older brother are tested as he is drawn into living a treacherous double life. Sanfur (Shadi Mar'i) was only 15 when he was coerced into being a tipster for the Israeli military. Two years later, Sanfur has grown closer to his contact, Razi (Tsahi Halevi), than either of them could have expected. But Sanfur's true loyalties still lie with family, and when Razi discovers that the impressionable teen is being drawn ever deeper into his older brother's nefarious activities, the future begins to look grim for everyone involved.
