An excellent story of a strong and driven person who helps create a homeland for her people.
This story shows triumphs as well as tragedies. This is Ingrid Berman and Leonard Nimoy at their best. Young Golda spends her life inspired by the words of a Jewish sage. She takes these words to heart, and makes them the driving force for her life. She is stubborn, intelligent, and very human. Her early years in Russia make her more enlightened than other American Jews of the day. She has a first-hand knowledge of persecution in Europe that few American Jews can understand. At a time when American Jews prefer to "blend-in" and avoid the J word in public; Golda is driven to go to Palestine and build a homeland in a simple way. She has no way of knowing that her talents and intelligence will catapult her to the center of the world stage from the rebirth of a small and poor country in a very rough part of the globe.
