When an unidentified sixteen-year-old girl is found dead with signs of sexual assault, bruises, healed fractures, and hard callouses on her hands, but wearing expensive jewelry and running shoes, SVU detectives suspect long-term abuse on many levels. However, they soon discover that the murdered girl, Kristy, was a star gymnast in-training with a harsh coach, secretly receiving special attention from an older man who was a major benefactor at her gym, and they realize that this was most likely not the work of a stranger. Further investigation into her life, and death, reveal that this young woman had more than a few astonishing secrets.
