The agents of the Jewish General Security Services (SHABAK) are known as "Moses' Spies". The continuing threat to the holy places of Islam in Israel has led the Israeli Security agency (SHABAK) to establish the Jewish department. This film is about recruiting undercover agents to infiltrate and assimilate into outposts suspected of hostile subversion. When they begin to be agents, they are guaranteed work with challenge, adventure, and worthy payment. The agents Ariel and Netanel live double lives in the communities and places where they are required to operate. They provide valuable intelligence to SHABAK regarding hostilities and revenge that settlers are about to carry out on their Palestinian neighbors. The agents are considered to be traitors in their society. If exposed, they are ostracized and boycotted from the society that has surrounded them their entire lives. The pain following their detachment and removal from the environment in which they grew up causes them lifelong trauma.
