Inside the mind of a suicide bomber

Are the Palestinian suicide bombers fanatics without a conscience or ordinary young people, driven to despair by decades of military occupation? Director Tom Roberts is given unprecedented access to Palestinians who have attempted to blow up Israeli civilians along with themselves.

A chilling examination of the psychology of the suicide bomber, from kamikaze pilots in WWII to recent bombings in Israel. As experts note, suicide terrorism is not a personal phenomenon, but a group one. We talk to an Israeli Army senior intelligence analyst, an attorney who defends suicide bombers, a failed kamikaze pilot, two failed suicide bombers from the Middle East, a military commander of Hamas, and bomb-makers. We also hear from a doctor who treats bombing victims and several survivors.
