When a Mossad agent discovers he has assassinated a Palestinian politician falsely accused of terrorist ties, he risks his job, marriage and ultimately his life to help the man's family. QUARTERFINALIST, NICHOLL FELLOWSHIPS WINNER, AMERICAN SCREENWRITERS ASSOCIATION
Typically Rafi drives a taxi as a cover, and he's assigned to two American diplomats preparing for the upcoming final status talks. From them, he learns that a new U.S. President wants a settlement that includes Hamas, which is anathema to Rafi's boss, Mossad Director Amit Ben-Ami. Erekat had been expected to propose Hamas's participation as well, and his cause is taken up by one of the Americans in particular, Tom Brown. Ben-Ami orders Brown's assassination, but Rafi is already suspicious that it's another in a string of assassinations serving his boss's megalomania more than national security.
His cover as a taxi driver has given Rafi his own cover for secretly visiting Yasmin, who's worried that her son, Azziz, will grow up with the hatred that Rafi recognizes in himself - hatred starting when his own father was killed that steeled him to become an assassin. Unbeknownst to Rafi, Yasmin, too, has recognized him as her husband's assassin, and asks that he give them , Yasmin and Azziz, a ride to the beach. There, she gives her son the option of killing Rafi or not, hopefully to expurgate his hatred.
Azziz lets Rafi live, but only to learn that his best friend, Yuri, has betrayed him. He's confided his doubts about Ben-Ami's motives to Yuri, whose instinctive envy and competitiveness eventually turns him against his own friend, and Yuri becomes Rafi's intended assassin.
Rafi bests them both by thwarting Yuri's assassination attempt, and better, exposing Ben-Ami. As a result, he's able to help Yasmin, convince his wife to come home, and expurgate his own hatred.
Final Status is Munich meets Walk on Water.
