Eyal is a UsefulNotes/{{Mossad}} hitman who targets enemies of Israel. His wife has recently committed suicide, and his chief Menachem decides that he needs to take on a less challenging assignment: to find Alfred Himmelman, an aging Nazi war criminal, and get him "before God does". In order to track down the old man, Eyal poses as a tour guide and befriends Himmelman's adult grandchildren, Axel and Pia.

* HidingBehindTheLanguageBarrier: Eyal uses Hebrew to do this several times around Axel, and relates an anecdote about his old schoolmates who, on a student exchange to Germany, played a dark "game" by approaching random passersby who were old enough to have been adults during WorldWarII, and asking them in Hebrew "What were you doing when my family was being burnt?".
