Synopsis: “Honorable Men” follows the story of former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert’s unexpected rise to power and his dramatic fall from grace, from the highest office in the land to Ward 10 at Maasiyahu Prison. Set as a political thriller, it follows the events that elevated Mr. Olmert to power and set the stage for his epic fall in the summer of 2008, as he was offering a far-reaching Israeli-Palestinian peace deal to Palestinian President Abbas. ‘Honorable Men’ highlights how cruel and boundless political struggles have become, shaping our reality in ways we don’t even fathom. As criminal investigations against heads of state become more common, the exposure of their use as a political tool raises many ethical questions. Does that mean that justice was miscarried? Does that absolve the crime? Was Olmert a corrupt man? Does that change the way we see the story?
