2013 Summer Israeli Film Series: Prisioners of War (Hatufim)


Addicted to Homeland? Wait until you see the original Israeli series upon which Homeland is based, even more engrossing and powerful than its U.S. offspring. Prisoners of War begins with the return of three soldiers who had been in captivity for 17 years. Two of them — Nimrod and Uri — come back alive; one — Amiel — returns in a coffin.

The series follows Nimrod and Uri and the people closest to them as they attempt to go back to the lives they were yanked out of 17 years ago. Hatufim, Hebrew for "kidnapped," has been rated Israel's all-time highest-rated drama.
