A mother is quick to defend her 14-year-old son who is found naked and asleep in a young woman's bed. However, Detectives Benson and Stabler try to figure out what truly happened.
A naked teenage boy found asleep in a woman's bed puts Detectives Benson and Stabler on the hunt for what turns out to be a possessive mother who has a "reasonable" excuse for his every misbehavior. As they attempt to ferret the truth out of the manipulative teenager, a bigger truth may await them.
