SYNOPSIS:   The story begins in the mid-1960s with the triumphant return of a trio of young Mossad agents from a secret overseas mission. Their accomplishment was killing “the Surgeon of Birkenau,” an infamous Nazi (obviously inspired by Josef Mengele) living comfortably in East Berlin under an assumed name.  Leap forward 30 years, and the three legendary figures (played by Helen Mirren in the present,  and Jessica Chastain in the past) are compelled to revisit the pivotal event that shaped their lives and careers and races towards a nail-biting finish.
