Take a compelling look at the point where religious fanaticism gives way to murderous intent as politically minded filmmaker Pierre Rehov explores the mind and motivations of the contemporary Middle Eastern suicide bomber. Though interviews with both the families of successful suicide bombers and would-be suicide bombers who attempts to achieve martyrdom were somehow thwarted, Rehov probes his subjects to get answers that are often as surprising as they are shocking.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The film's topic is of such timely importance that any illumination of the subject is to be welcomed, and there are enough insightful comments delivered by the pundits and subjects on display here to give the film at least some interest."
‑ Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter
"Rehov seeks answers, but there are none."
‑ Stephen Williams, Newsday
"Rehov zigzags from idea to idea without focus."
‑ David Cornelius,
"Pierre Rehov's haphazard inquiry into suicide bombing spends much of its brief running time replacing analysis with a litany of bummers."
‑ Nathan Lee, New York Times
"...Left me knowing a lot of what, but not enough how and why. However, it is worth viewing for the incredible obtained footage alone."
‑ Karina Montgomery,
"incredible footage of actual suicide bombers (past, present, and future)"
‑ John A. Nesbit, Old School Reviews
"Pierre Rehov's chilling documentary gets up close and personal with those who consider martyrdom the highest calling."
‑ Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News
"The movie feels like it abruptly ends, long after we've been worn out by it."
‑ Christopher Null,
