Shortly before her passing, Golda Meir was interviewed for the Israeli television. After the shooting ended the cameras kept rolling, recording an intimate talk with the first and only woman to ever rule Israel. As she lit one cigarette off the other, Golda spoke freely, pleading her case for her term as prime minister. Based on that never-seen-before talk, testimonies of supporters and opponents and rare archival footage, Golda tells the story of Meir’s dramatic premiership - from her surprising rise to power and iconic international stature as ‘queen of the Jewish people’, to her tragic demise.
