The Puerto Rican Day Parade is going on. A couple out on a rowboat finds a woman's dead body floating in Central Park. There is pressure to believe the woman's death is linked to several incidents of assault taking place during the parade. First, the detectives look at the victim's husband Ben Weber, as she had plans to force him to sell his business. Then they look at his partner, who he stood to lose quite a bit if the husband lost the business. He claims he was with her but went to get some help when he saw some Puerto Ricans coming his way. Eventually the investigation settles on a Brazilian young man who wanted to get into the spirit and ended up killing the victim. He is convicted of manslaughter.
