Abstract:

Dahlia Barr is a brash and successful Israeli attorney famous for defending Palestinians accused of terrorism. One day, to her great surprise, the national police approach Dahlia with a proposition: join us, and become the government's primary arbiter for when the use of harsh interrogation methods on prisoners - some would say torture - may be allowed. Dahlia accepts, with no intention of permitting the police to use this weapon of last resort. Then, one horrible day, Dahlia's son Ari is kidnapped by Hezbollah terrorists. The one man who might hold the key to Ari's rescue is an old acquaintance of Dahlia's, currently locked in an Israeli jail.
