A Palestinian in Ramallah, Mosab Hassan Yousef grows up angry and ready to fight Israel. Arrested for smuggling guns at the age of 17, he's interrogated by the Shin Bet, Israel's security service, and sent to prison. But shocked by Hamas's ruthless tactics in the prison and the organization's escalating campaign of suicide bombings outside, Mosab agrees to spy for Israel. For him, there is no greater shame. For his Shin Bet handler, Gonen, there is no greater prize: "operating" the oldest son of a founding member of Hamas. Written by Sundance Film Festival

6 June 2015 | by civleeSee all my reviews

Love the simple format.

Appreciated the pace and lack of manipulation.

Amazing story of courage, honesty, love, betrayal and sacrifice.

Feel inspired by the courage of the characters. Although loyalty and doing the right thing is often portrayed in movies/stories, seldom do you see it in real life as this story so clearly illustrates.

One can hope that it could inspire people to have the courage to think for themselves and question governmental, religious or business activities that don't follow the golden rule.

Thank you to all who participated in bringing this story to light. It's not often we see the real sacrifices people around the world are making to make the world a better and safer place.
