Fifteen years after the end of World War II, Israel’s intelligence agency Mossad and security agency Shin Bet – led by the tireless and heroic agent Peter Malkin (Isaac) - launched a daring top-secret raid to capture the notorious Eichmann (Kingsley), who had been reported dead in the chaos following Nazi Germany’s collapse but was, in fact, living and working in a suburb of Buenos Aires, Argentina under an assumed identity along with his wife and two sons. Monitoring his daily routine, Malkin and his operatives plot and execute the abduction under the cover of darkness just a few feet from Eichmann’s home. Determined to sneak him out of Argentina to stand trial in Israel, Malkin and Eichmann engage in an intense and gripping game of cat-and-mouse.

One of the filming locations was the little town of Olivera, near the mayor city of Luj?n, province of Buenos Aires, Argentina.
In the opening credits, a hand (presumably Eichmann's) is shown pushing pins into a map indicating the names/locations of concentration camps and major European cities where Jews were captured. One of the pins is marked "Vienna". However, since this is a German map they should have used the German name for Vienna, which is "Wien".
