Israel 2017, 91 min, Hebrew, Hebrew & English subtitles
Their target was to blow up the Muslim Dome of the Rock on the Temple Mount, the most volatile site in the Middle East. Success would have probably meant a world war.
It took the Israeli secret service 4 years to get their hands on the Jewish Underground, the largest terrorist organization of Israeli right–wing settlers, who carried out several attacks on Palestinians during the 1980s.
This political – detective thriller tells the story of how members of the Jewish Underground paved their way into the heart of Israel’s current political center of power.
