Open: 08/01/14- Close: 08/24/14 The Law Of Return
Inspired by the events surrounding the polarizing Jay Pollard espionage case, Martin Blank's original spy thriller The Law of Return depicts the actions of a notorious intelligence analyst abusing his level of access and threatening U.S. national security-or is he?

Once found out by the United States, Pollard leads police on a wild chase through D.C., desperately hoping to get to the Embassy of Israel and seek asylum.
