Eye for an Eye

Eye for an Eye is an action thriller that depicts the final hours of Oded Tsur before he must end his life.
Oded was in financial trouble with his failing business and was forced to take out a loan from a ruthless loan shark, Muki Zaken.
Muki forced Oded to purchase a life insurance policy and commit suicide by 9pm that day in order to repay his debt. Failing to do so by exactly that time would result in Muki killing his wife and kids as well.
Romi Dor, a sharp police detective tries to pick up all the pieces of the investigation, holding Daphne, Oded’s wife, who is found beside her husband’s burned body. The police investigation reveals that Daphne is a manipulative ruthless adulteress, who used her husband’s situation to murder him.
This action packed thriller leads us on a wild goose chase around a “un holy” dark Jerusalem, during a 24 hour period, where all hell breaks loose.
