Prisoners of War 2013
Prisoners of War: When three IDF reservists are captured during active service behind enemy lines in Lebanon their fate initially is unknown. They become symbols to the society from which they came and in their families, they are perceived as something between a misty memory and an ever-lasting glimmer of hope – until the day, seventeen years later, when they return. Only two come back alive. The third returns in a coffin. In Prisoners of War (Hatufim – or ‘abductees’ in Hebrew), the story of their time in captivity unfolds as they attempt to reintegrate into society: they try to cope with the pressures of being reintroduced to their families and friends, as well as handling the national hero status being thrust upon them via the public limelight.
