The film follows a young American named David, who comes to Israel to study and finds an Arab friend who legally lives there. Before long he finds himself involved with others and finds not all in Israel is as it appears. The action takes place before the 1967 Six Day War.



The Jerusalem File was met with mixed reception from critics. A. H. Weiler of The New York Times concluded his review stating, “The politics, the disparate motivations and the implicit drama of youth defeated by a world they don’t want are only vaguely projected and are secondary to the chase and shoot-em-up action of The Jerusalem File.”
