The Honourable Woman

Who do you trust?


Centers on Nessa Stein, a woman who inherits her father’s arms business and finds herself in a international maelstrom when as she continues to promote the reconciliation between Israelis and Palestinians.

“Who do you trust? How do you know? By how they appear. Or what they say? What they do? How? We all have secrets. We all tell lies, just to keep them from each other. And from ourselves. But sometimes. Rarely. Something can happen that leaves you no choice. But to reveal it. To let the world see who you really are. Your secret self. But mostly, we tell lies. We hide our secrets from each other, from ourselves. And the easiest way to do this is not to even know that you are. So when you think about it like that. It’s a wonder we trust anyone at all.”
