Documentary

Focusing on Avner's experiences working for Prime Ministers Yitzhak Rabin and Menachem Begin, the film opens as Rabin becomes Israel's first native-born Prime Minister in 1974. It examines the events surrounding the first treaty between Israel and Egypt, Rabin's tense relationship with President Jimmy Carter and his resignation following a financial scandal involving his wife. It explores Avner's decision to work for Menachem Begin after his surprise election in 1977, Anwar Sadat's historic visit to Jerusalem, the Camp David Accords, difficulties between President Carter and Begin and tensions between Israel and the US during the 1982 Lebanon War. Finally, the film recounts the Rabin's assassination in 1995 after being elected Prime Minister a second time.
