“Israel’s detractors often paint the security barrier, and the checkpoints that accompany it, as tools Israel uses to oppress the Palestinians, but we wanted to investigate the real story behind the checkpoints and their existence. This documentary examines the rational behind the checkpoints and the effects it has on Israelis. It’s clear the checkpoints have stopped suicide bombers and saved Israeli lives. While they are not ideal, until there is peace, does Israel have any other choice?”
