FALSE FLAG

A GRIPPING ESPIONAGE THRILLER

Winner of the Grand Prize at Series Mania 2015

Screened at the Special Series Selection, Berlinale 2015

Five Israeli citizens find themselves plunged into a gripping international espionage affair overnight. These ordinary people, going about their daily business, wake up one morning to discover that they are implicated in a ruthless kidnapping operation following the disappearance of the Iranian Defence Minister while on a secret visit to Moscow. News bulletins repeatedly flash their names and passport photos on screen, linking them to video footage from the kidnapping.

Their attempts at denial, followed laughter, indifference and anger are all in vain. The coverage turns their lives upside down and sweeps them up a storm of publicity and speculation. They are Israel’s new heroes of the day, the subjects of the nation’s curiosity, mockery and admiration – all at the same time. 

At first, everyone is convinced that “Mossad” was behind the showy operation – the methods, audacity and location leave no room for doubt. But then the five civilians are stunned to discover that the government, which is supposed to protect them, as well as Mossad itself, denies all involvement and accuses them as suspects. Instead of helping them, the authorities persecute, investigate and point fingers. Even their loved ones begin to doubt their innocence. Could they really have been involved?

“What stays in your mind is how gripping it is from the first episode due to the actors, who play their roles to perfection and the style of filming which follows the characters in a tight frame, alluding to the unpredictable trap that is closing in on them.”
Daily Mars, April 2015
“False Flag carries an essential message: it is still possible to renew the code of a political thriller series with brilliance. Through fiction, it demonstrates the stakes of modern international politics in a subtle and efficient way.”
Daily Mars, April 2015
"Thrill Ride. Keshet's hot strike may continue with False Flag"
Variety, October 2015
"False Flag has a touch of Homeland about it and could be the next big Israeli drama"
