Based on archive material, the film reveals the final years of Israel's founder, David Ben-Gurion, who has been described as the living embodiment of the romantic ideal of Israel. Excluded from leadership, he looks back on the Zionist enterprise in his lifetime.

A six-hour interview with David Ben-Gurion, one of modern history's greatest leaders emerges from the obscurity of an archive where it has lain unrecognised for decades.

It is 1968, and Ben-Gurion is 82 years old. He lives in the seclusion of his home in the desert, remote from all political discourse, which allows him a perspective on the Zionist enterprise. His introspective soul-searching is the focus of this film, and his reflections provide a surprising vision for today's crucial decisions and for the future of Israel.
