Shortly before her passing, Golda Meir was interviewed for Israeli television. After it ended, the cameras kept rolling, recording an intimate talk with the first and only woman to ever rule Israel. As the country’s prime minister from 1969 to 1974, Meir was confronted with significant and complex challenges, including the the Yom Kippur War. Through rare archival footage and testimonies of allies and adversaries, peel away the complexities of Meir’s historic, yet turbulent, premiership—from her surprising rise to power and iconic international stature as “queen of the Jewish people” to her tragic and lonely demise.
