Ed and Eve visit Freddie's, a house steeped in psychedelia, drugs and sex. They're looking for runaways, but Ed finds a lot of trouble, instead. He's accused of using excessive force when Barbara Chase, one of the women living there, is beaten. Worse for him, her father is prominent litigator Eldon Chase. With Ed suspended, Ironside, Eve and Mark must work to discover what really happened. Barbara tells her father she was only there to help people, but is she telling the truth? When Barbara later dies, Ed's problem gets worse and Ironside's investigation gets much harder.
