Synopsis for "The Gordin Cell":

Eyal Gordin has no idea his parents were once Russian spies, and he has become a decorated air force officer in a high-security post. Eyal is also keen for the family to erase their cultural heritage and behave as Israeli natives. When the Gordins' former handler re-appears on their doorstep, he now asks for more than their loyalty to their home country -- he wants Eyal recruited to the cause, as well. (episode run time: 53 min)
