In August 1940, even as it stands alone against the Nazi juggernaut, a 32-year-old poet and classical scholar declares war on the British Empire.
His name is Avraham Stern.
The organization he leads is known as the Fighters for the Freedom of Israel, or by its Hebrew acronym Lechi.
Stern is eventually hunted down and killed. But Lechi will regain its strength and take a role in the underground war against the British.
