The Darian Dilemma

In the winter of 1941 on the banks of the Danube, one thousand Viennese Jews wait for their fate to be determined by Mossad agents in a hotel room in Istanbul. Originally, filmmaker Nachum Laufer intended to tell the story of how he fled from Europe with his mother. However, while researching, he came across the story of another woman, Ruth Klieger, “the Lady of the Mossad.” His research takes us on a painful and complex journey through the history of the Jewish community in Palestine before WWII.
