Khaled and Said are Palestinian men who have been the best of friends since childhood. After being recruiting to carry out a suicide bombing in Tel Aviv, they are given the chance to spend one final evening with their families. They are told that they must keep their mission in absolute secrecy, though. Not only are Khaled and Said unable to share what will be happening with those closest to them, they won't even be able to depart with a proper goodbye.

In the morning, the men are taken to the border. Bombs are attached to their bodies in such a manner that they are not visible. The two leave to carry out their assignment; however, things do not quite go as planned. The friends become separated and are left to try to complete the bombing individually. It's a test of each man's convictions, as Khaled and Said both must accept their destinies and follow through with what has to be one of the most difficult operations a man can be asked to do. (Kim Hollis/BOP)
