PHILIPPINES, 6 NOVEMBER 2020 – HBO Max Original Valley of Tears is a harrowing, ten-episode limited drama series inspired by the true events of the 1973 Yom Kippur War in Israel. Leading up to the ultimate battle, the series follows young combatants thrust into a war that was later revealed could have been avoided by leaders they blindly trusted. Available exclusively on HBO GO, stream or download the first two episodes from Friday, 13 November. Two new episodes will premiere every subsequent Friday on HBO GO.
Valley of Tears focuses on the universality of heroism and sacrifice through four unique and intertwined stories: a famous bohemian television star in search of his estranged son, a newly enlisted soldier; a commander and his newly befriended intelligence analyst; tank crewman who represent Israel’s Black Panthers social justice reform movement; and a female officer who refuses to leave the battlefields, disobeying direct orders to evacuate. Shot at the actual location of the war, these intimate portraitures highlight the tension, anxieties and sentiments of the country’s people through a magnified lens, with the unprecedented outcome of an unlikely victory.
The HBO Max Original series is co-produced with WestEnd Films, United King and Endemol Israel. Streaming and available for download exclusively on HBO GO, the series will be presented in both its native language of Hebrew (with local language subtitles) and English (dubbed).
