Rom Lotan


Inspired by true events, an undercover Israeli case officer extorts gay Palestinian informants for crucial intel in the West Bank. When he falls in love with his most dangerous asset to be, the enemies-turned-lovers must work together when their countries and allegiances turn on them. Full of action and twists-and-turns, but also pain and coming-of-age tenderness, this first of a kind, genre-bending espionage drama is currently in development with a prominent studio and showrunner as an EP for the American market.
