Lemon Tree meets John Le Carre’ in a thriller set in Germany involving a Lebanese informer (Mona – Golshifteh Farahani) and an Israeli Mossad agent (Naomi – Neta Riskin) sent to protect her until she recovers from plastic surgery for her new identity, in a place where nothing is safe and no one can be trusted. Mona and Naomi, together for two weeks in a quiet apartment in Hamburg. A safehouse. A safe house. A shelter. No one saw what was coming, no one knew that these two supposedly quiet weeks would turn into a nightmare, that the house would not be safe anymore and that shelter would have to be found elsewhere. The intimacy of a relationship between the two women is exposed to the threat of terror that is engulfing the world today. In this game of deception, beliefs are questioned and choices are made that are not their own, leading to an ‘edge of the seat’ suspence story with surprising twists and turns till the very last moment.
