Golda brings the story of Golda Meir. After an interview with Meir ended, the cameras kept rolling, recording an intimate talk with the only woman to lead Israel. Golda spoke freely of her term as Prime Minister - five turbulent years that changed the course of history in the Middle East and secured her place in history, albeit at a high personal cost. Together with testimonies of supporters and opponents and rare archival footage, Golda tells the story of Meir's dramatic premiership - from her surprising rise to power and iconic international stature as "queen of the Jewish people", to her tragic and lonely demise.
