Law & Order: Cherished

The investigation into the death of an adopted baby girl leads Detectives Briscoe and Curtis to uncover secrets an adoptive family was desperately trying to hide. When the baby's brother turns out to be an abusive and disturbed young boy, Assistant District Attorney McCoy and his new headstrong partner, Assistant District Attorney Abbie Carmichael, try to prove it was murder. They soon realize things don't always appear as they seem.
