Netflix presents a real story from the life of Ashraf Marwan. The protagonist of the "Angel" in 2007 was found dead under the windows of his apartments in London. So far, the true death of this man remains a mystery. The version of premeditated murder is well-grounded.
The fact is that Ashraf was the son-in-law of the second president of Egypt, Nasser. There is evidence that he was an adviser to the next head of state and worked for Israeli intelligence. Marwan himself denied any involvement in espionage. He made a multi-million dollar fortune on the arms trade and other business.
