In 1933, David Ben-Gurion stands at the head of a united Labor party and he is a member of the Zionist Executive, world Zionism’s supreme political body.
Two years later he will become its chairman and head of the Jewish Agency, the organization primarily responsible for immigration and settlement in Palestine.
Yet, despite holding concentrated authority, Ben-Gurion will confront a series of problems that form a Gordian knot impossible to untie.
They threaten to turn the Zionist dream to dust.
