For years, Unes collaborated with the Israelis and sold land from his fellow Palestinians to Jews. Today, he lives in constant fear of retaliation by his own people. Bedridden and paralysed after a stroke, he spends his days watching the live feed from security cameras installed around his home. His family ponder leaving the country and even after his death, their headache isn't over as they have trouble finding a burial ground.

Director's Note
Collaborators are part of the "silver platter" on which the State of Israel and its approach to security was founded and is molded to this day, yet the State of Israel still hasn't defined what a collaborator is. Today, recruitment of collaborators is often done not only through enticement but sometimes by placing a sword on the neck of the collaborator or his family: threatening to expose sexual relations, refusing medical care, etc.
