In a time when Israel is growing more isolated in the Middle East and is fearful of a nuclear armed Iran, Noa Kagan, an MIT-trained scientist and strong-willed daughter of a socialist kibbutz upbringing, loses her only son when he is killed in combat. Deranged by grief and anger, she sets out to embarrass the right-wing Israeli government she blames for his death by breaking the country's most sacred taboo: she leaks information about Israel's top-secret nuclear weapons program to Alan Raskin, an American journalist whom she has seduced. The couple are soon hunted down by the Shin Bet, Israel's secret police, in the person of Gavri Gilboa, a haunting figure from Noa's past. The intertwining of their three lives comes to a tense conclusion in a chase that takes them across the Mediterranean.
