1939. This tense, historical thriller set in British Mandatory Palestine pairs a British police officer, Thomas, with Shoshana, the daughter of a leader in the Zionist Labor movement. At the same time, Likud head, Avraham Stern, leads a violent campaign to evict British authorities while the British adopt a stern policy towards the resistance. Ultimately, Shoshana will be forced to choose between the two.

Guest speaker: SFSU Professor Eran Kaplan.
