Iosi, El Espía Arrepentido

This hour-long, eight episode scripted series based on real life events follows the story of a young Argentinean intelligence agent on a mission of redemption after he infiltrates the Jewish community for several years to gather information that is then allegedly used to perpetrate two of the worst terrorist attacks in Latin American history, leaving over 100 dead.
