Two years later Oded’s worst fears come true: His father gets caught in Cairo and is facing a death sentence. Also in the court room is a young, blonde lady from Germany, his father’s wife, but definetely not Oded’s mother… 40 years later Oded breaks his long silence and journeys into his father’s real and covert identities, revealing the heavy price paid by his family, trapped in the shadows of espionage.
