On October 6th, 1973, under cover of darkness, on Israel’s holiest day and during the month of Ramadan, the combined forces of Egypt, Syria, and Jordan begin a surprise attack on the Sinai Peninsula and the Golan Heights.
Outnumbered and outgunned, Israel’s only female Prime Minister, Golda Meir, confronts the immediate, clear, and present danger of a ticking timebomb that she hoped never to face.
Surrounded, isolated, and frustrated by the infighting of her all-male cabinet, with little hope of rescue, one woman is in a race against time to save millions of lives on both sides of the conflict.
Academy Award® winner Helen Mirren stars as Golda Meir.
Produced by BAFTA winner Michael Kuhn (Florence Foster Jenkins, The Duchess), GOLDA will be directed by Academy Award® winner Guy Nattiv.
The screenplay by Nicholas Martin (Florence Foster Jenkins), who also produces, tells the story of the intensely dramatic and high-stake responsibilities and decisions that Meir – also known as the “Iron Lady of Israel” – faced during the Yom Kippur War.
