Video link with Leila Khaled from Jordan
"A fine portrayal of a compelling and mysterious figure" Nicolas Blincoe
"Fair and thorough account of a poster girl of Palestinian militancy" Dr. Ludwig Watzal
Based on interviews with Khaled and those who know her, Sarah Irving gives us the live-story behind the image. Key moments of Khaled´s turbulent life are explored, including the dramatic events of her hijackings, her involvement in the Marxist Popular Front of Liberation of Palestine (a radical element within the PLO), her opposition to the Oslo peace process and her activism today.
