The meteoric rise of Avigdor Lieberman was the first sign of a new era in the State of Israel—and with it the steady dominance of right-wing politics and the emergence of a new political elite. But Lieberman himself, who immigrated to Israel at the age of 20 without a penny to his name, remains a mystery. How did he make it? Is he corrupt or a victim? A racist or a pragmatist? And what lies beneath his turbulent special relations with Benjamin Netanyahu, dating back to the eighties? Nurit Kedar’s film deciphers the Lieberman story from a new perspective, one that has to do with the social changes that Israel underwent over the last two decades.
