Steal The Sky
Based on the true story, American-born Israeli spy, Helen Mason, was sent to Iraq to coerce an Iraqi pilot into hijacking a Soviet jet for Israeli defense research. She seduces pilot Munir Redfa in order to blackmail him – with unexpected results. They both find themselves falling in love and torn between love and loyalty to their countries. Munir hijacks the plane and in a desperate race against time, flying perilously close to death, this story builds to a terrifying climax.
English language, 110 minutes, 2006 Production by HBO and Yoram Ben Ami.
