A young girl is found on the street with her throat slashed. She's taken to the hospital and SVU is called because the doctor says she was sexually assaulted before. While the doctor tells them she can't talk, when asked who did this to her, she draws a picture of the devil. They learn that she's the adopted daughter of a priest. He tells them that she's from Africa and that she was abused as a child. When they tell them where she was found, the priest tells them that she probably went to see a man who is also from Africa who's a child soldier. When they find him, he tells them that she wanted him to kill the man who raped her in Africa. They eventually find the man. But her friend faces deportation where he will surely face death so he holds up in the church with a gun. Written by
