Harry and Tanner's friendship goes back to WorldWarII, when they served together as Marines in Japan. While in Japan, Harry had fallen in love with a local woman, Eiko, and helped save her sick daughter. Eiko's brother Ken was disgraced by his sister's relationship with a former enemy soldier and he disappeared into the yakuza underworld. However, since Ken owes a lifelong debt (called ''[[PillarsOfMoralCharacter giri]]'' in the movie) to Harry, he reluctantly joins them to help rescue Tanner's daughter.
