Synopsis

In September 1993, Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin announces the Oslo Accords, which aim to achieve a lasting peace between Israelis and Palestinians after decades of violence. Yigal Amir, a law student and an Orthodox Jew, cannot believe that his country’s leader will cede territory that he and many others believe is rightfully - by the word of God - theirs. Incitement chronicles the disturbing descent of a promising law student to a delusional ultranationalist obsessed with murdering his country's Prime Minister.
