Filmmaker Dror Moreh launches an active campaign to understand the motivations for Israeli leader Ariel Sharon's political about face in which the once hard-line war hawk suddenly seemed to question everything he ever stood for. The unscrupulous militarist known as the "hero of the Six-Day War" was never considered a friend of the Palestinians, and as the Israeli Minister of Defense he was held directly responsible for Christian Lebanese Falange militia attacks on Palestinian refuge camps back in 1982. Later, when Sharon took control of the government, he continued calls for establishment of illegal Jewish settlements in Palestinian territories. So what happened in 2003 that caused the lifelong Israeli military man and politician to suddenly soften his rhetoric? In addition to exploring the possibilities for such a surprising shift in tone, Moreh also ponders Israel's turbulent history, as well as the family history of his controversial subject.
