Under the guidance of Lt. Murphy, Sgt. Benson and the SVU take an active approach to catching sex offenders — they target Simon Wilkes, a well-regarded photographer with a secret life. An undercover investigation finds his graphic fantasies may have crossed the line into reality, at a child’s expense. But the case becomes impossible when no evidence of a victim is found.

Dedicated Detective Olivia Benson (Mariska Hargitay), a seasoned veteran of the unit who has seen it all, heads up the department with empathy and professionalism, all the while dealing with her difficult past.
