This psychological thriller follows the year leading up to
the 1995 assassination of Israel’s Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin
from the point of view of the assassin – an ultranationalist,
right-wing Zionist. The film details, for the first time, the
forces that acted upon the assassin, including the
religious and political incitement, and the personal and
the interpersonal turmoil. It is a gripping and unnerving
look through the eyes of a murderer who silenced a
powerful voice for peace.
