The film describes the chain of events and the motives that led Gan Shmuel Kibbutz member Udi Adiv to commit those actions - from his ideological education derived from the Shomer Hatzair Movement to his deep disappointment with the State of Israel's standpoint and his shift in relation to the Arabs after the shining victory of the Six-Day War, which contradicted the education he had received. The Six-Day War was also a traumatic event for him when, as a medical orderly, he was exposed to human tragedies. Daud Turki grew up in Haifa in an Arab family whose suffering in the wake of the wars formed the basis of his political viewpoints.

I am Israeli and I knew Udi then. I always believed that if we had the courage to follow our education all the way, we would have come to the same conclusions that Udi did but I never did anything about it. When he was arrested I was shocked, especially because I saw him 2-3 days before. Not for one moment did I believe he was a spy or traitor. I always believed he was naive and ideological but not a traitor, not a spy. But I was, and shockingly still am, almost alone in my belief. I never hid that I knew him and my closeness to one of his family members but people thought I was the naive one and far removed from the story so they left me alone. I was elated from far away when he was freed but I knew it won't be easy for him and unfortunately it's still true. This is a great video, a bit too late but nonetheless, worth seeing for anybody who believes in the Udi Adiv, A broken Israeli mythtruth and still has humanity beyond nationalism in his heart.
