Rasoul and Tarik were childhood best friends who grew up in the Muslim quarter of Paris. Estranged since Tarik came out of the closet at the age of 15, the two are thrown together again when Tarik is chosen to represent France in Tel Aviv at Europe’s biggest song contest, and Rasoul, now a member of his father’s ISIS terror cell in Paris, is tasked to reacquaint himself with Tarik in order to gain access to the contest and blow it up. And if that doesn’t sound funny – well, it is. In this energetic spoof, while it’s hard to say who is more bumbling, Rasoul’s father (Itzak Cohen, Fauda) and his minions or the three-person Mossad team in Tel Aviv tasked to prevent the attack, it turns out that Rasoul isn’t cut out for the mission either, especially as the chill between himself and Tarik begins to thaw. Co-starring Shani Klein (Zero Motivation, Ha’Har).
