Zoar Argov has become a musical legend not less than Elvis in Israel of 1980s. Born of the Yemenite background famous for its vocal proficiency, Zoar, a son and a grandson of chronic drunkards had become a drug addict in his youth. The feature argues that the drugs were not the only thing that had led him to the tragic end. The lack of truly devoted friends, cruel attitude of his beloved wife, and the environment by and large ignorant to his inner tragedy had had also contributed a great deal toward his desperation. I liked the feature for its sincere and accurate exposure of the ambivalent issues of Zoar the King's life.
