Ben furiously assumes in-living mate Dave got his daughter pregnant, but is relieved to find she has an adolescent boyfriend and humbly begs Dave not to move out. The police makes the daughter admit the couple sneaked off, leaving Tommy to be babysat by neighbor Vanessa. Dr. Joseph 'Joe' Richardson, her husband, is most sympathetic to patient Ben, until he discovers the couple 'lost' a son that age in what seems abusive circumstances, finds on Internet he fled England after an abuse scandal and snoops in doc's office. Ben's client Arthur Fenton turns out a gutter reporter, who demands a scandal, targeting Ben if not Joe.
