Synopsis: Charged with overseeing Israel's war on terror-both Palestinian and Jewish-the head of the Shin Bet, Israel's secret service is present at the crossroad of every decision made. Living in the shadows, they have never spoken about their work in front of a camera before. For the first time ever six former heads of the agency agreed to share their insights and reflect publicly on their actions and decisions. The Gatekeepers offers an exclusive account of the sum of their success and failures. The film enters the inner sanctum of the people who have steered Israel's decision-making process for almost half a century. It validates the reasons that each man individually and the six as a group came to reconsider their hard-line positions and advocate a conciliatory approach toward their enemies based on a two-state solution.
