Constable Benson, a rookie cop, is the first officer on scene when an unidentified police officer is found dead. Eager to prove his worth, Benson seeks additional responsibilities from the Detective running the case, but finds himself relegated to doorknocking for witnesses. When Benson comes to a house that is hosting a hen’s night, he is mistaken for a male stripper and unintentionally uncovers the key to cracking the case.
