Synopsis

JULY 4, 1976 Entebbe, Uganda. Led by Lieutenant Colonel Yonatan Netanyahu, crack Israeli commandos race from their airplanes covered by the midnight darkness. Methodically, they approach a non-descript airline terminal, burst inside, killing the stunned terrorists. Helpless and shocked, 103 hostages lift their heads and gratefully weep at the sight of their saviors. As the alarms begin to sound, the Israeli soldiers strike with surgical precision and speed. It is all over in a few minutes. Terrorists lay dead. The hostages rush out to board the transport planes waiting to evacuate the hostages to safety. During the mission, a lone shot from a control tower burst in the night -- and a sharp cry for help is heard. That cry would become the cry of an entire nation, mourning the loss of its prodigal son… Thirty-year-old Yonatan Netanyahu has been shot dead. And with his death, Yonatan became an international hero.
