“This forgotten tale in Israel’s history evokes social questions on the misuse of power” – myNewYorkeye

In June of 1948, six weeks after the State of Israel was established, Captain Meir Tuviansky, an Israeli officer formerly in the British army, was accused of treason. Over four hours, he would be interrogated, court martialed and sentenced to death. But was he really guilty? And what motivated the head of security to act so swiftly and harshly? This biopic dramatises an incredible chapter in Israel’s history, and the resulting fallout that is remembered to this day.
