Bethlehem tells the story of the unlikely bond between Razi, an Israeli secret service officer, and his Palestinian informant Sanfur, the younger brother of a senior Palestinian militant. Razi recruited him when he was just 15, and developed a very close, almost fatherly relationship with him.|
Now 17, Sanfur tries to navigate between Razi's demands and his loyalty to his brother, living a double life and lying to both. Co-written by Yuval Adler, who also directed, and Ali Waked, an Arab journalist who spent years in the West Bank, and based on years of research, Bethlehem gives an unparalleled, authentic portrait of the complex reality behind the news.
