Madman and SBS DVD proudly present Prisoners Of War, the Israeli psychological thriller which inspired Homeland, available now on DVD.

As the men deal with a society which has turned them into national icons, partners who waited or moved on, children who have grown up without them, and parents who have died, the stories of their time in captivity unfolds…
