Follow Me: The Yoni Netanyahu Story

Yoni Netanyahu hated war but loved his country. He led the seemingly impossible but successful Raid on Entebbe but tragically became the only Israeli casualty. Told partly through his own letters and poetry, this compelling documentary unveils his complex character by allowing us to see beyond his tough exterior into a deep inner personality where heroism, duty, love, turmoil and doubt raged. His writings describe with striking clarity the exhilaration and fear he faced during the crossroads of his short but fascinating life and the recognition of his human frailty. Nevertheless, Yonatan Netanyahu dared to make a difference, and he is a true modern day hero.

Featuring interviews with three Israeli Prime Ministers and recently released audio from the Entebbe operation itself, Follow Me brings a rare portrait of Israel's elite soldiers and one of their greatest heroes to the screen.

Special Guest: Sharon Kabalo, Deputy Consul General of Israel to the Southeast
