Similar to the security branches in the USA with the FBI handling domestic issues and the CIA the ones abroad, the State of Israel has two agencies: the Sherut haBitachon haKlal, better known by its English acronym Shin Bet and Mossad.

Six former heads of Shin Bet speak frankly about their time in office and the major events that they oversaw. In total there are seven segments ranging from the original inception of the agency to coping with Jewish terrorism, dealing with the Palestinian situation and the aftermath of the Oslo Peace Process.
In each instance archival film footage or CGI recreations gives us some idea of what transpired but they were all too brief as many of these events are not something most of us are familiar with. This shortcoming results in more questions than answers for the average viewer.

for disturbing images.
