Dror Moreh a décidé de réaliser ce film après avoir mesuré l'importance décisive du Shabak (Shin Beth) sur la scène politique israélienne depuis quarante ans. Ces six directeurs à la retraite de la sécurité israélienne évoquent leurs victoires et les échecs passés sans nostalgie. Très critiques vis-à-vis des politiques menées par leurs gouvernements (à l'exception de celui d'Yitzhak Rabin), ils défendent tous un changement radical de politique en Israël : la recherche de la paix et la reconnaissance au plus tôt de l’État palestinien.

Using film made at American prisons, Leuchter talked about his upbringing where his father was a corrections officer.

The event led him to design modifications to the device that were adopted by many American states.
