A young couple is mugged and brutally attacked, leaving one of the victims in the ground and the other in a wheelchair. Wracked with guilt, the mother of the man accused of their attacks enlists Brodie's friend Daniel to help track down the jewelry her son stole from the victims. Although the chances for recovery of the jewels are slim, and Detective Superintendent Jack Deacon thinks it's a lost cause, Daniel and Brodie refuse to give up the case.
