The film was written and directed by Raff, known for his creation of the Channel 2 thriller drama series “Prisoners of War,” which was adapted in the U.S. into the Emmy-winning Showtime series “Homeland.”
Raff’s “The Red Sea Diving Resort” is inspired by one of the most remarkable true life rescue missions ever. The film tells the story of a group of Mossad agents and brave Ethiopians who, in the early ’80s, used a deserted holiday retreat in Sudan as a front to smuggle thousands of refugees to Israel.
