After a teenager's quinceañera turns deadly, Detectives Jaruszalski and Winters track down a lead to a marijuana crop and the boy who is guarding it. Unfortunately, this brings them to the attention of the man who owns the field with fatal consequences.

Meanwhile, DDAs Price and Morales walk the line between prosecutor and statesman duties when they are asked to worry about the Mexican government's sensitivities above their case needs, which pushes a fed-up Morales into an unexpected decision.
