This documentary looks inside of the offices of Israel's Prime Ministers, through the eyes of an insider, Yehuda Avner, who served as a chief aide, English language notetaker, and speechwriter to Levi Eshkol, Golda Meir, Yitzhak Rabin, Menachem Begin, and Shimon Peres. It focuses on the period between 1947 and 1973 when Ambassador Avner worked with the Prime Ministers Eshkol, Meir, and US Ambassador Rabin. Avner reveals new details about the Six Day War, the development of Israel's close strategic relationship with the United States, the fight against terrorism, the Yom Kippur War and its aftermath.
