The film stars Chris Evans, Haley Bennett, Greg Kinnear, and Michiel Huisman. It’s based on a real-life operation that occurred in the early 1980s.
Israeli secret agents used an abandoned resort village in Sudan to hide their operations. Tourists came to the resort in the hopes of experiencing the warm temperatures and pleasant sea breezes. The resort was rented by the Mossad agents. They used it as a front for their operation and steered thousands of refugees to Jerusalem.
The mission was named “Operation Brothers” and ran from 1979 to 1984. Approximately 6,000 Ethiopian Jews were spirited from Sudan to Israel. The Jews were victims of war, famine, and persecution.
