    • Synopsis
    • "Kidon" begins in the morning of the 18th of February 2010 in Tel-Aviv when the whole world wakes up discovering, on the front page of all the newspapers, pictures of the Mossad agents caught while killing Mahmoud al Mabhouh in Dubai a month earlier.
      Everybody was taken by surprise because it was the first time that simple security cameras of a hotel caught secret agents red-handed, what's more Israeli agents. But without doubt, the most surprised of all were the Mossad leaders who were the only ones to know for sure that the 3 men and the woman, whose faces were in all the newsrooms of the world, had nothing to do with them. From then on, a race against time is undertaken hoping to understand why everything is aiming at them.
      As the protocol requires it, the boss of the Mossad along with his main assistants, from a liaison officer of the police to a representative of the prime minister, starts investigating. In no time, the "4" of Dubai are identified but it only blurs the situation a bit more since they are simple little French goons from Tel-Aviv: Daniel, a little crook raging in the art world, Eric, the "Miss" of Tel-Aviv, "Facebook" the hacker and Einav, the pretty student. How did they end up in Dubai? How did they mount such an operation? For whom do they really work?
      As the investigation progresses rapidly and the impostors are caught by the Mossad, the investigators understand little by little that the group has a well-hidden agenda and that they are playing a highly risked double-game which involves French, Russian and Iranian diplomats. The outcome as far bigger than it seems and discover too late that in a universe where everything is but illusion, even the masters of the discipline can sometimes be made fools of themselves.
