Eyal is a {{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.
