Renowned New York Ledger columnist Jimmy MacArthur (Alec Baldwin) is given full access to Sergeant Benson (Hargitay) and the squad for an inside look at the city's Special Victims Unit. When the rape case of a young Muslim woman (guest star Summer Bishil) escalates to a hate crime, Jimmy stays one step ahead of the investigation and declares the entire crime a hoax. With the victim under fierce public scrutiny, Benson struggles to keep the case on solid ground and fears a rapist will go free. Written by
