1993. In this rollicking take on modern diplomacy, a Norwegian social scientist and his diplomat wife are determined to try a new tactic to break the long-standing deadlock of the Israeli-Palestinian peace process. A secret back channel in Norway leads to unexpected breakthroughs as negotiators find common ground. When the political becomes personal, relationships are forged that offer a chance to alter the course of history.

Includes a conversation about the Oslo Accords with Steven Spiegel, Director of the Center for Middle East Development at UCLA.

Recorded before a live audience at the UCLA James Bridges Theater in April, 2019.
