Valley of Tears comes to Fox Showcase

The harrowing HBO Max Original drama series, Valley of Tears, set against the backdrop of the 1973 Arab-Israeli War will screen on Fox Showcase next month.

Inspired by true events and filmed in Hebrew, this compelling 10-episode series explores the Yom Kippur war, when Arab states led by Egypt and Syria launched a surprise attack on Israel on the holiest day in the Jewish calendar, Yom Kippur.

Through its magnified, unflinching lens, Valley of Tears reveals the tension, anxiety and trauma of a fateful war.

Valley of Tears focuses on the universality of heroism and sacrifice through four intertwined stories: a journalist searching for his estranged, newly-enlisted son; a commander and an intelligence analyst forced to flee their base near the Syrian border; three friends on a tank crew facing political and personal conflicts; and a female officer who remains on the frontlines, despite orders to evacuate.

Directed by Yaron Zilberman and based on a screenplay by Ron Leshem, Valley of Tears stars Aviv Alush, Joy Rieger and Lior Ashkenaz

Valley of Tears Starts Tuesday, March 9 at 9.30pm on Fox Showcase
