When a man is found beaten half to death in the park, Briscoe and Curtis discover that his attackers were avenging their mentally-ill sister, whom they believed the man had raped. This proves to be false, as it turns out the girl had sex with another mental patient, but then the detectives discover that the assault victim had committed an even more heinous crime.
