Recommendation  
The honourable Woman

A miniseries starring Maggie Gyllenhaal as Nessa Stein, the daughter of an Israeli arms procurer, who was murdered. She tries to turn her father's enterprise in a new direction by laying data cables to the West Bank.

It's beautifully acted and shot. A total treat. Plus it has a reasonable take on the Israel-Palestine conflict, not some sort of propaganda cliche.

Yes, I saw ep 1 and thought it very interesting. Have no clue where it's going at all either.

Me neither, but it was really a great watch. How much better shows are, in which women take their heels off when they run. :)

Yes.

I'm so curious about this little Arab boy and his mother, and why Nessa sleeps in a panic room that looks like a prison cell.
