Carrie Mathison, a CIA operations officer, is on probation after carrying out an unauthorized operation in Iraq. As a result, she has been reassigned to the Counter terrorism center. Whilst in Iraq, she was warned that an American prisoner had been turned by Al-Qaeda. When Nicholas Brody, a U.S. Marine Sergeant, is rescued after being held hostage since 2003, she suspects that he is the one. While Brody is received home as a war hero, Carrie goes to any lengths necessary to catch him out. Written by

The American series is based on an Israeli drama series Prisoners of War
(2009) (Hebrew for 'Abducted' or 'Kidnapped'). Gideon Raff
created the original series in response to the many Israeli soldiers who had been enemy captives and their brutally difficult, and largely unreported, efforts to reintegrate into Israeli society after they returned home. One of the major differences between the Israeli and American series is that Brody was apparently rescued in Homeland, while in Hatufim the POWs were traded. See more
Brody and other US Marines are referred to multiple times as "soldiers", including by a character who claims he was with a UDT (underwater demolition team, a "sister" team to the Navy SEALs who have to pass the same training). It's a point of pride among US Marines that they are marines, not soldiers. Brody refers to the UDT character as a soldier. As Naval personnel, he would be a sailor. See more
He'd want a proper Muslim funeral.
If nobody claims him, he'll be buried in Potter's Field.
