A child is caught in the middle of a famous couple's nasty divorce.


Benson and Murphy question renowned television producer Frank Maddox when he's accused of molesting his 8-year-old daughter Chelsea. Maddox's estranged wife, actress Catherine Summers, wants justice for her daughter but refuses to cooperate, leading the cops to suspect the accusation was a ploy to win the public's favor. With Catherine's young sister Rose engaged to Maddox, and accusations flying back and forth in the media, Benson strives to help a child by discovering the truth.
