Director Steven Spielberg explores vengeance and morality in an international episode of the Arab-Israeli conflict. After members of the Palestinian Liberation Organization murder Olympic athletes in the 1972 Munich games, the Israeli government secretly assembles a team of five Jewish men to assassinate the perpetrators. As they travel throughout Europe to complete their mission, some express doubts and misgivings about their mission. The Palestinians, some protected by the Americans and French, begin to target the team in a never-ending cycle of vengeance.
