Watch the incredible life story of former Israeli Prime Minister, Menachem Begin—imprisoned by the Soviets, orphaned by the Holocaust, crowned Peacemaker by the Nobel Prize Committee–in this captivating documentary. With evocative imagery, rarely seen archival materials, and revealing interviews with those who knew him, Upheaval portrays the life and essence of this brilliant, tough, complex, loving, and proud man who never compromised when the survival of Israel and the Jewish people were at stake.
