After a world-renowned economist, and leading contender for this year’s Nobel Prize in Economics, is found dead in his bed by four of his closest friends, they decide to keep his death a secret to ensure that he has the chance to win the prize.
A handsome man arrives at Avishai’s funeral, introduces himself as Gershi, and claims to be an old friend who’s been living in the US for decades. But the four friends make a shocking discovery and realize he might not be who he says he is.
Gershi invites the four to his yacht but, wary of his motives, they go equipped with a recording device. On the yacht they discover more damning evidence, confront him, and leave, but Gershi makes a surprising move on Zohara.
The friends file a complaint with the police against Gershi, but later find out they may have received false information about him. Meanwhile, Avishai’s will is revealed and it turns out Zohara will be the most impacted.

While Zohara is away, Nili enlists Gershi to pretend to be her boyfriend during a dinner with her ex-husband and his young, pregnant girlfriend. Gershi visits Zohara in the middle of the night with some crucial news about the murder case.
After Gershi helps Zohara, she tries to get close to him but discovers that he is now dating Nili. Yehuda moves into Gershi’s yacht, where a man claiming to be a journalist interrogates him about Gershi. Zohara makes an excuse to draw Gershi to her.
Zohara and Gershi go behind Nili’s back while Amos discovers that Gershi helped him with his university position. But Gershi’s character is called into question again when the journalist asks Nili disturbing questions about how his wife died.
Nili tries to warn Zohara, but she won’t listen and goes on a cruise with Gershi. Nili and Yehuda discover troubling details about the death of Gershi’s wife and must save their friend. Will the four friends finally learn the truth about Gershi?
