Tehran Season 1 Plot:
Lead character Tamar Rabinyan (Niv Sultan) is a Mossad operative and computer hacker on an undercover operation in Iran's capital to sabotage a nuclear reactor. She was born in Iran but raised in Israel. Her goal is to degrade Iranian air defences so that the Israeli Air Force can bomb a nuclear power plant and prevent Iran from gaining a nuclear weapon.
She assumes the identity of Zhila Gorbanifar, a Muslim employee of the local power company, when she arrives in Iran. She enters the electric company station and connects to the computer network in Zhila's place. She then tries to turn off the electricity to the Iranian radar system in order to aid an ongoing Israeli Air Force operation.
