Shane, the youngest of the Hennessey brothers, ends up before magistrate Glenda de Bono for a second time when he is arrested and charged over a burglary and a vicious assault. It's been almost a year since de Bono put Shane on a good behaviour bond after he stole a car and became involved in a high-speed police chase. Shirl desperately wants to keep her youngest son out of jail, hoping he won't end up like his brother, Mal, who is facing a life sentence for murder. However, Shirl is unaware of Shane's deep-seated fear of his brother and the family's dark secret. On his way into court, Shane's girlfriend slips him some drugs, forcing the case for be adjourned to allow Shane to come down from his drug-induced high. During the break, Glenda de Bono hears a case against a family of Romanies involving crystal ball readings, curses, and large payments of cash. Finally, Tina Bertrum proves her versatility when she prosecutes both the Romanies and Shane Hennessey.
