As one of the Hamptons' most elite and mysterious residents, Boris Kuester von Jurgens-Ratenicz (Campbell Scott) was a fantastically rich German aristocrat with an unpronounceable last name but a breathtaking estate called Shadow Pond. But Boris' luxurious guesthouse, the home of Hank and Evan and their business, HankMed, came with some strings attached. As Boris' personal physician, Hank was at the beck and call of the secretive billionaire. And Hank had his work cut out for him, because when it came to finding a cure for Boris' deadly hereditary disease -- and keeping his illness a secret -- the ultra-private billionaire didn't take breaches of confidence lightly.
Despite his prognosis, Boris found happiness with Dr. Marisa Casseras, a beautiful and brilliant Cuban geneticist who was helping Boris find a cure. She also happened to be the mother of his child. And when Jill Casey was badly hurt in a hit-and-run meant for Boris, Boris finally uncovered his relatives' sinister plot to get rid of him even before the disease could.
Confident that his relatives' machinations against him were finally over, Boris let his guard down, and tried to put that terrible chapter of his life behind him. Boris wanted to focus on his own family, and a chance at happiness. But then, tragedy struck. And as the smoke cleared on the terrible accident, it became very clear - Boris' relatives weren't done with him at all.
