prisoners of war still

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.”
