This documentary attempts to deconstruct the man who single-handedly ushered Israeli politics into the 21st century. Relying solely on archival footage, it follows Netanyahu from when he was a shy young man to when he became the Israeli ambassador to the United Nations, to his public confession of adultery and finally to his emergence as a formidable Prime Minister of Israel. He achieved all this because of his mastery of the art of social media. This controversial portrayal of Bibi Netanyahu challenges us to decide whether he is Israel’s great political hope or a cynical politician who will stop at nothing to retain his power.
