Political Documentary ‘The Green Prince’ Thrills, Offers Hope

The Green Prince Political thriller, “The Green Prince” tells the story Mosab Hassan Yousef, son of a key Hamas leader, who betrays his father and country to work for Israeli security forces.

The narrative is framed around his life as a double agent, and loosely based off his memoir, “Son of Hamas: A Gripping Account of Terror, Betrayal, Political Intrigue, and Unthinkable Choices.”

Incarcerated for buying illegal weapons, Israeli intelligence, Shin Bet, approaches Yousef with a proposition. Israeli handler, Gonen Ben Yitzchak, convinces Yousef to be an informant, providing privileged, pertinent information on Hamas.
