Plot & Details
July 4, 1976 Entebbe, Uganda - Led by Lieutenant Colonel Yonatan Netanyahu, crack Israeli commandos burst inside a non-descript airline terminal, killing stunned terrorists and evacuating 103 hostages. A lone shot sounds in the night, and Yonatan Netanyahu, brother of current Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, lay dead. Follow Me is an intimate story that penetrates the tough exterior of the only soldier killed in Entebbe. Using Yonatan's own poetry, letters and prose, the film delves into the mind of this reluctant young hero, where duty to family and country, love, turmoil, and doubt over the core value of war raged. Yonatan's words are made deeply moving by his honest introspection and heartfelt passion. Features interviews with three Israeli Prime Ministers, Yoni's ex-wife (for the first time), and recently released audio from the Entebbe operation itself-Follow Me is a rare portrait of Israel's elite soldiers and their greatest hero.
