From 1948 onward, the Israeli military censorship examined soldiers’ letters under the guise of preventing the disclosure of military secrets. But unknown to soldiers was a secret apparatus which copied their letters and stored them. The purpose was to analyze the views of ordinary soldiers, and the findings were presented to high-ranking officials in a top secret report titled “The Soldier’s Opinion."

This report opens a window into the most intimate thoughts of soldiers on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, morality and brutality in war, and Ashkenazi-Mizrahi relations. The film sketches the alternative history of Israel that the report offers, and reveals what actions those who read it chose to take.
