In 1960, 12-year-old Oded Gur Arie discovers his father is an agent for Mossad. Ordered to infiltrate a circle of German scientists working on weapons of mass destruction in Egpyt, he loses himself in his feigned identity as ex-Nazi millionaire. In 1965 the death sentence looms. Forty years on, Nadav Schirman interviews Oded and former Mossad agents, who paid a high personal price for espionage.
