A Jordanian airliner makes an emergency landing in Tehran. Among the passengers is Tamar Rabinyan, a Mossad hacker-agent who infiltrates Tehran under an assumed identity. She shoulders a historic responsibility: to neutralize Iranian radar so Israeli warplanes can bomb a nuclear reactor and prevent Iran from obtaining an atomic bomb. If she fails, the Israeli planes can’t take off. Faraz Kamali, a senior Revolutionary Guards commander and spy-trapper, realizes that Tamar has infiltrated his country and hunts her down.

Tamar’s mission fails—she is trapped in Tehran. Running for her life, she takes cover among the young opponents of the Iranian regime, falling in love with one of them, Milad, against her will. Tamar, who was born in Tehran and emigrated to Israel with her family when she was five, is exposed to Tehran’s stormy underground scene, in dank cellars and on the streets. Despite the danger and the emotional sacrifices, Tamar will do everything to carry out the mission she’s been charged with.

Rising young Israeli actress Niv Sultan (Flawless, She Has It, Temporarily Dead) takes the lead role of Mossad agent Tamar Rabinyan; critically-acclaimed actor Shaun Toub (Majid Javadi in Homeland, Academy Award® Best Picture winner Crash, and in the upcoming highly anticipated TBS series Snowpiercer) plays Iranian security officer Faraz Mehmet; and international star Navid Negahban (Abu Nazir in Homeland, Legion, Aladdin) is Mossad Field Commander Masoud Tabrizi. Tehran is created by Moshe Zonder, who wrote the hit Netflix Original series Fauda.
