In the clip, two armed Palestinians with covered faces stand behind three actors who play the roles of the kidnapped teens.

The three actors, whose eyes are covered, read out their respective names, Gil-Ad Shaer, Naftali Fraenkel and Eyal Yifrah, under the threat of a gun. The three actors playing the kidnapped teens are then commanded to say Allau Akbar ("God is great").

In the film the captors make the following demands: the release of Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails, the termination of the "occupation" in the West Bank and the end of IDF home demolitions and expropriation of land. 

Towards the end of the scene, other actors depicting IDF intelligence officials are shown watching the captors' demands. An actor in the film dressed as a haredi watches with the officials and proclaims that he is scared.
