This is a biography on film of Golda Meir -- born in Russia, raised in Wisconsin-- who became Israel's prime minister. The film follows her life from her youth (Davis) to her days on the kibbutz with husband Morris (Nimoy). It was during this period of the formation of the Jewish nation that she first became politicized. Her days as the leader of Israel in her senior years are dramatized by the singularly spectacular Ingrid Bergman.
