For the first time, this story will be told through the eyes of four women.
Ankie Spitzer, the widow of the murdered athlete Andre Spitzer spends over forty years trying to keep her husband’s memory alive and finds solace in her fight for recognition so the world will never forget.
Esther Roth Shahamorov, an Olympic athlete groomed as Israel’s fastest runner loses her dream and becomes a role model for the next generation, waiting for someone to break her record and pass the torch.
Sylvia Raphael, a high-level Mossad agent, gives up her life to become a Mossad agent, eager to join a clandestine mission but ends up in prison.
Marianne Gladnikoff, reluctantly joins the Mossad team on a mission in Norway to assassinate the Palestinian terrorist responsible for the Munich massacre and never recovers. It’s a story of intrigue; secret identities; it’s about love and death; conflict and reconciliation; war and peace.
These four women’s lives have been changed forever.
