In never-before-seen footage, 82-year-old former Israeli Prime Minister David Ben-Gurion is interviewed at his secluded desert home in 1968. He reflects on his life, political legacy and hopes for Middle East peace. The reels of silent footage were inadvertently uncovered in the Steven Spielberg Jewish Film Archive in Jerusalem, with the corresponding soundtrack later found in the Ben-Gurion Archives in the Negev.
