An unidentified man (played by Mark-Paul Gosselaar) is found shot and sexually molested in an alley outside of a gay bar. Detectives Benson and Stabler try to come up with possible motives and suspects. They learn the victim came from a small town in Arkansas. They then enter deeply inside the porn industry, only to realize the motive was more uncommon than what they thought: acting in porn films pays for the couple's dying daughter's mounting medical bills. The lead witness (played by Kevin Geer), who is a recovering drug addict, angers Fin who then has to re-think his police role.
