The documentary tells a story of Betar, which is a totally unknown Jewish youth organisation operating since the mid-20s until WWII both in Poland and all around the world. The organisation played an important role in history, even though it does not exist either in literature or in people’s historical consciousness. Many members of Betar took an active part in the rebuilding of the Jewish country in Palestine and in shaping its future. One of the members of the organisation was Menachem Begin, the Prime Minister of Israel in the years 1977-1983. The movie reveals the origins of the organisation, its core assumptions and goals. Former members of the group talk about the meaning of Betar in their lives and, above all, how it changed them.
