Living with a lie

I quite enjoyed the movie The Debt (2007 Israeli version) which gives a fictional account of three Israeli secret agents who live for 30 years as national heroes based on a lie. They claim to have killed a Nazi war criminal who they had actually mistakenly let escape from them.

It is good tense enthralling drama. But the nagging and effective question that haunts the viewer is: is my ambition and fear of failure and exposure so great I could live with such a lie? and would go to such lengths to preserve it?
