As Prime Minister of Israel, was Golda Meir good or bad for the country? In this multilayered documentary, the answer is both. Her supporters and detractors offer their opinions about her accomplishments and failures. She was a strong defender of Israel, and a hero to Jews worldwide.
But she also ignored overtures that might have earlier established peace with Egypt, was dismissive of Mizrahi Jews and their difficulties, and embraced policies that resulted in many deaths. All is laid bare in this fascinating film.
