Imprisoned by the Soviets. Orphaned by the Holocaust. Crowned peacemaker by the Nobel Prize Committee. Menachem Begin was a pillar of the State of Israel and a tireless fighter for the Jewish people. He was also a controversial leader endlessly dedicated to his country. That, however, was not without consequence. With evocative imagery, rarely seen archival materials, and interviews with Israelis and American diplomats, this documentary is a compelling portrayal of a brilliant, tough, complex man who never compromised when he felt that the survival of Israel and the Jewish people were at stake.
