First off, I am surprised that Robert Baer, ex-CIA and all that, was allowed to talk freely with so many people and families in Iran. Secondly, the film points to the obvious: suicide bombers are those brainwashed into believing there is a 'more rewarding', post-death world awaiting. This belief and sentiment fuel people's desire and willingness to blow themselves up for a cause they believe worthy. Unless we succeed in dispelling this belief, suicide bombers, or martyrs as they prefer to call them, will continue to make headlines by taking their lives and the lives of many others in acts of violence in the years to come. This is a great documentary if you are interested in the subject.
