Suddenly she is running for her life from raving Arab fanatics - while the Israeli General Security Service ruthlessly pressures her to work in a dangerous undercover assignment. Reluctantly giving in to Israeli demands, Deborah agrees to gather intelligence. Soon she clashes with Raba, an American-Arab woman with centuries-old allegiances of her own.
