Valley of Tears comes to Fox Showcase

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
