PRISONERS OF WAR

The dramatic best-seller that became the Emmy ® winner “Homeland”

Winner of nine Israeli Academy Awards in 2010 including Best Drama and Best Director

Prisoners of War is a drama about three Israeli soldiers who were captured seventeen years ago while on a secret mission with their unit in Lebanon. The story begins with their return home, after years of negotiations for their freedom. Two soldiers return to Israel alive, the third comes home in a coffin.

The series explores the soldiers’ reintegration into Israeli society on both a national and personal level. However, while the soldiers are reacclimatizing to their lives, a secret investigation is also unfolding, into the truth surrounding their capture and the many discrepancies in the soldiers’ stories. As the investigators get closer to finding what really happened to them in captivity, the two soldiers become even more determined to hide the biggest secret of all.

A 40% average market share made Prisoners of War the highest rated drama in Israel in 2010/2012.

 

“A quiet, intelligent, moving and profoundly sad examination of the wages of permanent conflict.”
