Synopsis: 

This bracing political thriller looks back on the 1994 bombing of Buenos Aires’ AMIA building from the perspectives of two men on opposing sides of the Arab-Israeli conflict. Director Joel Novoa intelligently navigates the film’s sympathies, building toward a climax involving violence, betrayal, and a chance to reconsider the fundamental nature of devotion.
