Prisoners of War
This dramatic series tells the story of three Israeli soldiers who were held captive for 17 years following their kidnapping while on a secret mission with their unit in Lebanon. "Prisoners of War" offers an intense look at the aftermath of captivity for Israeli soldiers Nimrode Klein (Yoram Todeano), Uri Zach (Ishai Golan) and Amiel Ben Horin (Assi Cohen), after they return home as heroes and work to overcome the trauma of torture and captivity while settling back into their disrupted family lives. Israeli film and television director, screenwriter and producer Gideon Raff created both "Prisoners of War" the program upon which “Homeland” is based, and the latter American counterpart as well as the recent FX series “Tyrant.”
We’re exposed to Atar Shorer’s meticulous recruitment of Yinon, and a new direction in Haim and Iris’s investigation leads them to “Operation Judas”, which brings them to confront Ze’ev on the subject. Nurit is fraught with anxiety and guilt over her decision. Nimrode spends a happy, emotionally charged evening with Michaela, the company clerk he had an affair with 17 years ago. Talia goes out searching for herself doing yoga, and meets a young man. Abdullah hums a Hebrew song to Yussuf.
The mystery of the picture of the man on the shore with his two children, which hangs both in the villa at Jabaliya and at the home in Al Ajar village, continues to trouble Uri, who is ordered by Haim Cohen to investigate the matter with Iris. Across the border, this same picture consoles Yussuf. He’s being followed by Abdullah, who’s closing in on his secret drop-off spot, and his wife, who’s looking into details from his past.
We return to Jamal’s past and are exposed to startling plot twists. Yussuf is not pleased with Ismail’s new bond with Abdullah. Talia and Dr. Ostrovsky go out on a date, much to Dana’s displeasure. Uri suffers from poor health, and goes to see his family doctor.
