Summary Through a combination of rare archival footage, home movies and private letters, Yitzhak Rabin’s personal and professional dramas unfold. From his childhood as the son of a labor leader before the founding of the State of Israel, through a change of viewpoint that turned him from a farmer into an army man who stood at some of the most critical junctures in Israeli history, through his later years during which he served as Prime Minister and made moves that enraged a large portion of the public, until the horrific moment when his political career and life were suddenly brought to an end. Winner of the Rozalia Katz Award for Best Documentary Film at the **Haifa International Film Festival.** *"Rabin's consistent, thoughtful self-criticism and colorful storytelling animate what might otherwise be a pat, or at least familiar, history of Israel in the 20th century." - Diana Clarke, **The Village Voice***
