Two women who become the match ball of political power interests: the Lebanese informer Mona and the Israeli Mossad agent Naomi who was sent to protect Mona until she recovers from plastic surgery for her new identity. The two women, who have a lot more in common than it at first may seem, spend two weeks together in a secret apartment in Hamburg. A safehouse. No one saw what was coming, no one knew that these two supposedly quiet weeks would turn into a nightmare. A vexatious game of treason, loyalty and decisions which are made that are not their own, put the women’s relationship of mutual curiosity and suspicion to the test: what makes life worth living and who, in the end, can really be trusted?
