The Honorable Woman (SundanceTV) Episode 5 “Two Hearts”

The Honorable Woman Episode 5 “Two Hearts” airs Thursday, August 28th on SundanceTV at 10/9c.

Episode Synopsis: The Honorable Woman Episode 5 “Two Hearts” – Back in Gaza, Atika and Nessa make a pact to keep a secret that binds them for life. The secret, however, is not safe between them. Eight years later, Nessa discovers that Atika has formed a personal alliance with Ephra that may jeopardize the Stein family’s reputation. Meanwhile, at an Israeli university funded by the Stein family, a computer science professor uncovers a corrupt institutional policy. When the university directors refuse to take action, he makes a detrimental public appearance that precipitates Nessa’s discovery of what appears to be a major oversight in the structure of the foundation’s telecommunications initiative.

Show Summary: “The Honorable Woman” follows Nessa Stein (Gyllenhaal), whose father was a Zionist arms procurer; as children, she and her brother witness his assassination. Years later, after inheriting her father’s company, she dramatically inverts its purpose from supplying arms to laying high-spec data cabling networks between Israel and the West Bank. Now in her thirties, her sudden appointment to the House of Lords, apparently due to her tireless promotion of projects for reconciliation between the Israelis and Palestinians, creates an international political maelstrom.

Joining Gyllenhaal is a top international cast including: Academy Award nominee Stephen Rea (“The Shadow Line,” “Father & Son,” V for Vendetta); Oscar and Tony Award® nominee Janet McTeer (“Damages,” Albert Nobbs); Lindsay Duncan (“The Hollow Crown,” “White Heat”); Andrew Buchan (“Broadchurch,” “Garrow’s Law,” “The Fixer”); BAFTA Award® nominee Katherine Parkinson (“The IT Crowd,” “Sherlock”); Eve Best (“Nurse Jackie,” The King’s Speech); Lubna Azbal (Incendies, Occupation, Paradise Now, Body of Lies); Tobias Menzies (“Game of Thrones,” “Rome,” “The Shadow Line”); Igal Naor (300: Rise Of An Empire, Green Zone) and more.
