A rape victim, Vicki, is brought into the hospital initially claiming she has been attacked multiple times by the same man. Detectives Benson and Stabler are determined to help her, but she lives in such terror that she then denies she has been raped at all and refuses to submit to a rape kit. As Benson looks for a way to help, she is horrified to learn that there are police precincts and evidence labs across the country that never test their rape kits at all. The investigation soon leads her to Los Angeles where she meets Detective Rex Winters, who has information that could finally help Vicki get justice.

A man with 80’s style metal rock hair gets on the bus, proselytizing as
he goes. He finds a young lady at the back of the bus who he first
thinks is drunk but then realizes something is really wrong. When she
turns her head, the left side of her face is bloody. She says “He raped
me. Again.”..
