Prisoners of War begins with the return of three soldiers who had been in captivity for 17 years. Two of them come back alive; one returns in a coffin. During their long years of absence there was no information as to their whereabouts and little is known about what they've been through. The series follows the two (and the people closest to them) as they attempt to go back to the lives they were yanked out of years ago. We follow them as they cope with their new reality on both a private and national level. On the personal level. they are reintroduced to their family members: Their wives who may or may not have moved on with their own lives; their kids who are strangers to them; their parents some of whom are no longer alive; and their friends who have been fulfilling their dreams and living their lives to the fullest while our heroes' lives were put on hold; And also with each other. They've been each other's everything for the past years and now they have to learn to live apart. On a national level. the three captives have turned into icons. symbols of the conflict. Almost every street corner has flags carrying their picture. stickers with their images decorate cars and windows. From two guys who spent their days in a tiny cell somewhere underground in a daily battle to survive they turn into public figures who may never live up to the myth created around them. Nimrode and Uri also have to get used to a world that is very different from the world they left behind. How can they compete to find a job for example when they don't even know what the internet is. or who the president is etc. In addition to their personal struggles and challenges. during the series the two go through intense interrogations with IDF psychologists who try to suck out of them every piece of information about the enemy and also to assess the national security damage caused by their capture. Soon it becomes clear that there is a lot more to this story than their personal drama. Some parts of their testimony don't align and an undercover investigation is set to determine who the two really are. and what their motives might be. From the start it is clear that there's a secret the two are unwilling to share which stands in the heart of the series. Format wise. the series exists on three time plains. each one with a distinct visual expression; the present. the past (before their capture) and bits and pieces of their life in captivity that throughout the duration of the series build a clear picture of what exactly happened there.
