In December 2003, Prime Minister Ariel Sharon publicly announced the Disengagement Plan. Against acrimonious resistance from his own ranks, he ordered 21 Jewish settlements to be razed to the ground. As General of the settlers’ movement, Sharon was responsible for the massacres of Sabra and Shatila, and then became a strategic statesmen who committed himself to peace in the Middle East and then, with eyes wide open, single-mindedly destroyed his life’s work. Who was Ariel Sharon? How did the historic decision which led to the eviction of settlers in Gaza and Samaria come about, thus clearing the path to a possible peace agreement? In the years prior to his devastating stroke, the director Dror Moreh accompanied the Head of State with his camera in an attempt to get to the heart of the puzzle of, “Who was Sharon?”, introducing us to a different man who, until now, was hidden from public view.
