Based on the actual events of a 1994 bombing in Buenos Aires, God's Slave follows Ahmed, trained since childhood as an Islamic terrorist now assigned to execute a suicide bomb at a synagogue, and David, the cold blooded Israeli special agent who will stop at nothing to prevent the attack. With time running, David zeroes in on Ahmed as a suspect, his investigation culminating in violent, if unexpected, consequences.
