Recounts the dramatic history of Zionism, one of the most controversial and urgently relevant political ideologies of the modern era. The century-old conflict in the Middle East continues to play a central role in world politics. And yet, amidst this fierce, often-lethal controversy, the Zionist idea of a homeland for Jews in the land of ancient Israel remains little understood and its meanings often distorted. The film addresses that void with a gripping exploration of Zionism's meaning, history and future. Told through the remarkable lives and voices of Jews and Palestinians living in the Middle East today, the film weaves together past and present, ideas and passions, wars and peace talks, brilliant minds with the voices of ordinary citizens to develop a film portrait of unprecedented depth and sensitivity.

The film includes the history of Judaism mainly from the pogrom in 19th century Russia to the assassination of Yitzak Rabin in late 20th century. It includes the story from the viewpoint of both Israelis and Palestinians. Many people of goodwill had hoped that a two state solution was possible in late 20th century, but now those hopes seem doomed as the Israelis keep electing far right-wing governments who have turned a blind eye to the Palestinians basically locked in the poverty, unemployment infested Gaza Strip.
