Review

Prisoners of War is the gripping ten-part drama on which the American series Homeland is based. When three Israeli Defence Force reservists are captured behind enemy lines in Lebanon their fate is unknown, that is until seventeen years later, when they mysteriously return - two of them alive, the third in a coffin. The story of their time in captivity unfolds as they attempt to reintegrate into society; trying 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. The gripping plot unravels through three time plains; before capture, life in captivity and present day, which all intertwine to reveal dark secrets about their life in captivity.
So if you found Homeland overblown and incredulous, check out the sourec for it. A much classier piece of televison altogether.
