Shortly before her death, Golda Meir was interviewed for Israeli television. When the on-air exchange ended, the cameras kept rolling, recording an unguarded and intimate conversation with the first and only woman ever to lead Israel. As she lit one cigarette after another, Golda spoke freely, pleading her case for her five years as prime minister. Based on that never-before-seen interview, as well as testimonies of supporters and opponents and rare archival footage, Golda tells the story of Meir’s dramatic five-year premiership – from her surprising rise to power and iconic international stature as “queen of the Jewish people,” to her tragic and lonely demise.
