Four decades after her death, Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir’s image is clouded by controversy. The first and only woman ever to rule Israel, Meir is perceived as a feminist icon in many countries, but in Israel some see her five years in power as a symbol of disgrace. Months before her passing, after Golda Meir was interviewed for Israeli television, the cameras kept rolling. As she lit one cigarette after another, Meir spoke freely, pleading her case for her term as Prime Minister. Based on this never-before-seen material, testimonies of supporters and opponents, and other rare footage, Golda tells her dramatic story, from her surprising rise to power to her lonely demise.
