In an off the record conversation filmed after a televised interview with Golda Meir shortly before her death, the retired political leader, cigarette smoke swirling around her, spoke candidly about her time in office, a term bookended by the Attrition and Yom Kippur wars. With this never-before-seen recording, rare archival materials and testimonials from colleagues and family members, Golda tells the exceptional story of a trailblazing and uncompromising politician – the first, and for now only, Israeli woman Prime Minister – who could never fully heal from the wounds of war.
