The series "Kidnapped" begins with the return of two soldiers who were captured 17 years.
Seventeen years ago, a reserve unit was sent deep into Lebanon to eliminate a wanted terrorist leader. The operation failed and three soldiers, Nimrod Klein, Uri Zach, and Amiel Ben Horin were captured. After years of secret negotiations, in a prisoner swap, they are released. Two return alive, one in a coffin. Hatufim is their story.
The three prisoners became national icons of Israel while in captivity. Series explores their problems re-entering society at the national and personal levels
On the personal level, the former prisoners must deal with relationships severed long ago, with wives and friends who either continued or did not continued their lives, children who never knew them, parents are no longer alive, friends who have lived a lifetime in their absence after seventeen years.
At the same time, two series of investigations by military psychologist try to get every bit of information about the enemy and their experiences in captivity that the returnees want to forget. The investigation discovers something is very wrong, and that the stories are not consistent. The army begins an undercover investigation trying to find out exactly what happened and why their stories differ.
