Days before the Nobel Prize recipients are announced, Avishai (Gidi Gov), a chief contender in the field of economics, is found dead in his home. But after realizing his death would disqualify him from the esteemed honor, Avishai's four closest friends - recently retired Nilli (Tikva Dayan), millionaire Yehuda (Doval'e Glickman), scandal-prone Zohara (Liora Rivlin), and competitive Amos (Sasson Gabai) - decide to fudge facts and keep up the appearance that Avishai is alive and well, at least until the big announcement. Holed up in a stuffy home with a rotting corpse, the four lifelong confidants face a slew of increasingly ridiculous and uproarious hurdles involving unexpected guests, faking phone calls, and one very unfortunate run-in with a bicyclist, all while struggling to take control of their own messy lives. Cleverly devised and choreographed by director Daniel Syrkin, and adapted from Noa Yedlin's novel, Stockholm is a sprawling episodic farce about the resilience of friendship told with no shortage of irreverence, wit, and heart.
