With a political career spanning 66 years, Shimon Peres is the current President of Israel and twice prime minister. He was a close associate of Israels founder and first Prime Minister, David Ben-Gurion. Seen as a war hawk in his earlier career, he was responsible for arms acquisition at the age of 24, and went on to ensure Israels ultimate security by implementing its nuclear program. He later won the Nobel Peace Prize with Yitzhak Rabin and Yasser Arafat for his work on the Oslo peace accords. A man of many contradictions, Peress career has seen him transformed from a hawk to a dove. This film is a glimpse inside the world of the self-confessed workaholic to whom family always comes second to his country and a penetrating look at the burdens of leadership.
