The Hero of Entebbe is Yonatan ”Yoni” Netanyahu, the older brother of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who masterminded the 1976 raid on Entebbe Airport which freed the dozens of Israeli hostages held captive in Uganda. Using Yoni's own poetry, letters and prose, the film delves into the mind of this reluctant young hero and reveals his duty to family and to the Israel he loved. Film features interviews with his brother, two other Israeli Prime Ministers, Yoni's wife (for the first time ever captured on camera), fellow officers, and recently released audio from the Entebbe operation itself. It is an inspiring and emotional portrait of Israel and one of its great icons.
