***SPOILERS*** James Earl Jones in recovering drug addict Candy "The Candy Man" Lateen the director of the neighborhood's "Phoenix House" in New York's lower Manhattan's drug infested and crime ridden "Alphabet City". After a number of robberies in the neighborhood it's suspected by the police and local merchants that a number of people connected with "Phoenix House" were responsible and Det's. Johnny Corso, Frank Converse, and Jeff Ward, Robert Hooks,were sent out to investigate. Only to come up empty handed in any evidence of members of drug rehabilitation center having anything to do with the crimes. Still a number of innocent and law abiding ex-junkies just minding their own business are attacked by neighborhood thugs that has Lateen demand that the police do their jobs in protecting his ex-addicts then finding out who's committing the crimes that their being held responsible for!

In Part 1-Of the "Candy Man" episode-we soon realize that somebody is out to frame "Phoenix House" in the robberies that he or they are committing. What turns thing around in favor of "Phoenix House" is that the two thugs who worked over some of its members, breaking one of their noses, had the charges dropped by their victims showing them that their not the crazed and mindless junkies that their being accused of being.

With crime still rampant and out of control in the neighborhood it's Let. Mike Haines, Jack Warden, who soon realizes that what Mr. Lateen has been telling him about his ex and recovering drug addicts that are being set up for crimes that they didn't commit may have some truth to it. But we and Let. Haines we'll have to wait until the next episode or "The Candy Man" Part II to find out just who's doing it!
