(DRAMATIC MUSIC FADES UP)

(MUSIC CHANGES)

ARI (V.O.):

For most of the past year...

I have been German businessman

Hans Hoffman.

My real name is Ari Ben-Sion.

Lying to everyone is

difficult...

but my life depends on keeping

the two worlds separate.

(PHONE RINGING)

(RINGING CONTINUES)

ARI (V.O.):
If I could, I would

be Hans Hoffman all the time.

Hans Hoffman.

MAN (OVER PHONE): We found him.

He's at the Avalon Hotel.

We're a go.

Okay.

ARI (V.O.):
One of our agents

has been passing...

top secret information

to the Syrians.

My partner and I have been

assigned to bring him back...

to Israel for interrogation.

(PHONE RINGS)

MAN (OVER PHONE):

You are compromised?

Yes.

MAN (OVER PHONE): Don't worry,

I will get you to Syria.

If my people find me, I am dead.

MAN (OVER PHONE):

Trust me, my friend.

Did you find who I am

looking for?

All I know is his code name.

We call him The Angel.

MAN (OVER PHONE):

I need to know...

Hello? Hello?

(DRAMATIC MUSIC PLAYING)

ARI (V.O.):
When missions go

bad, there's only one rule.

Protect your partner.

What a f*cking mess!

I'll explain everything

to Miki.

(THEME MUSIC PLAYING)

REPORTER (OVER TV): Negotiations

between Israel and Syria...

collapsed today over the

exchange of prisoners.

Unconfirmed sources blame

leaks on both sides.

The East German Government

confirmed this afternoon...

that all travel restrictions

have been lifted.

Large crowds have gathered

along the wall...

separating East and West Berlin

to celebrate.

The Israeli Colonel Benjamin

Ehud was found dead...

of a heart attack in his

Berlin hotel room yesterday.

His body was flown to Israel

for a full military funeral.

Ari Ben-Sion, here to see Miki.

- Are you armed?

- Yeah.

I'm sorry, Miki. It all went

wrong in Berlin.

We could not bring Ehud back

alive.

Yeah, I read your report.

I still feel nauseous about all

the lies I told at his funeral.

Of course... the truth...

would have hurt more.

Then why did he do it?

Money?

I doubt we shall ever know.

So, Miki... why am I here?

Our people in Berlin will help

with any clean up...

you cannot do from here.

I want you in for a full

assessment.

I am good, Miki.

I have no doubt.

DR. ROTEM:
Sleeping well?

Like a baby.

How many alcoholic drinks

would you say...

you consume on an average day?

ARI (V.O.):
I moved to Israel

from Germany...

when I was a child...

I did not adjust well.

I was sent to more

psychiatrists...

than I could count.

I learned how to tell them

what they wanted to hear.

So, you and your wife

have separated?

ARI (V.O.):
We just couldn't

recover after our son died.

DR. ROTEM:

Ari?

Ari... it's very easy to get

lost in your cover...

and neglect the problems

in your real life.

It's been less than a year

since the accident.

Do you think your son's death

affected your last mission?

What do you want me to say?

He would have killed my partner,

let's stop wasting time.

You are here to tell Miki

if I am okay to be reassigned.

And are you?

(INDISTINCT RADIO CHATTER)

(CAMERA SHUTTER CLICKING)

(DRAMATIC MUSIC PLAYING)

(SPEAKING ARABIC)

Have some tea.

Earlier today, we captured

an Israeli spy.

FUAD:
If we act quickly...

we may be able to trade him

for your sons.

Hm.

I promise you, I will get

our children home.

General.

Sarraj...

Good afternoon, General.

SARRAJ (OVER PHONE):

I just heard the good news.

Congratulations on arresting

the Israeli spy.

Excellent work.

I was told it was urgent.

SARRAJ (OVER PHONE):

It is.

Have you begun discussions

with the Israelis...
