The Impossible Spy
1986, True Life
In 1959, Ellie Cohen (John Shea), an unassuming Israeli accountant, is recruited by the spy agency Mossad to gather intelligence on the Syrian government. Disguising himself as a Muslim businessman, Cohen ingratiates himself with the top brass of Syria's Ba'ath Party and gains the trust of prominent party leader Gen. Gamal Haled (Sasson Gabay). But the threat of blowing becomes increasingly dangerous as Cohen draws closer and closer to the inner circle of the enemy.
