On June 12, 2014, the disappearance of three Jewish boys in Israel sends shockwaves across the nation. Simon, a terrorism agent at the Jewish Division of Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency) and his team search for answers. Arab teen Mohammed lands in a dangerous environment while Jewish teen Avishai finds himself at a crossroads.
In the wake of their son's disappearance, Hussein and Suha face pressure from the police as they search for answers. Simon and Mike disagree on their theories about the hug and a new angle arises when a rumor leaks to the public.
Simon meets with Mohammed's family to probe for details about his life. Hussein and Suha find their neighborhood in the midst of a riot, while misinformation spreads across the internet.
With the Jerusalem deputy DA looking over their shoulders, Simon and his team focus their investigation on Israeli persons of interest as Mohammed's family remain overwhelmed by the fervor surrounding their son's death.
Mike worries that Simon risks crossing a line when he goes undercover as a reserve-duty soldier in Adam to learn more about Yosef and Rabbi Yizhak Ben Shoshan. Later, Simon works to get a tortured Avishai to open up to him, as Shabak readies to make crucial arrests. Suha mourns Mohammed's death and learns more about his life, and Hussein decides to talk to the media.
Simon turns to Dvora for help in getting Avishai to talk; Hussein is approached by prosecutor Uri Korb.
Avishai reconstructs Mohammed's abduction and hug for Simon over the course of a night.
Avishai and Yinon try to navigate isolation in prison; Simon's personal and professional lives collide; Hussein and Suha decide whether to appear in court.
Avishai pins his hopes on Simon who takes the stand; Dvora suffers the consequences of defiance.
As the trial reaches its climax, a psychologist speaks to Yosef's mental state, while an emotional Avishai prepares for his testimony and a tough cross-examination. Simon finds that his good work has come at a price and, later, is confronted by Dvora when he seeks professional help. Hussein and Suha become frustrated with Uri Korb's reluctance to meet their demands, and after a verdict is handed down, they seek solace and peace.
