Prisoners of War centers on three Israeli soldiers who are captured during a covert mission in Lebanon seventeen years earlier. After years of prison, one of their number dies, with the remaining two managing to gain their freedom and return to Israel. The series explores the soldiers’ post-war attempts to rebuild their life as well as the truth of what really happened during those seventeen years of imprisonment.
Prisoners of War is written and directed by Israeli filmmaker Gideon Raff, and is the basis for the US hit drama Homeland. Not only has Prisoners of War received universal critical acclaim, but it was Israel’s highest rated TV drama of all time upon its initial release. The series has won numerous accolades including Best Drama Series at 2010 Israeli Academy of Film and Television Awards, and it is reported that a third season has been commissioned.
