Israel's Shin Bet was born in the wake of the Six Day War of 1967, when 1 million Palestinians were placed under Israeli military rule essentially overnight. 45 years later violence continues unabated while the mistrust between both sides increases daily. 
"In the war against terror," begins one-time Israeli Security Agency head Avraham Shalom, "there is no morality." Dror Moreh’s "The Gatekeepers" is a rare glimpse into the untold history of the Palestine-Israeli conflict from the point of view of the Shin Bet, Israel’s primary intelligence and counterterrorism agency. In a series of unprecedented one-on-one interviews, combined with never-before-seen archival footage, Moreh gives us unfettered access to the decisions, rationalizations and regrets of Israel’s most powerful homeland security officials.
