Plot Summary

Richard Beck (Richard Crenna) is a veteran Seattle cop with little sympathy for victims of sexual assault. Beck's world is turned upside down, however, when his loose-cannon tactics get him reassigned to the city's sex crimes department and result in his own rape at the hands of two surly thugs. After, with the help of rape counselor Barbara McKee (Meredith Baxter Birney), the formerly chauvinistic cop experiences a drastic change of heart on the issue, feeling compassion for the first time.
