Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Disapproving of his son Grove's romance with Japanese girl Mitsuo (Nobu McCarthy), wealthy Hudson Nichols (Ralph Dumke) hires a private detective to frame Mitsuo for the theft of his wife's valuable pearls. He tells the mortified girl that he won't press charges if she will give up Grove (Steve Terrell). Surprisingly, it is not Nichols who turns up murdered, but instead Mitsuo's uncle (Rollin Mariyama), who orginally strung the pearls and whose death has been arranged to look like hara-kiri. Whatever the case, Mitsuo is arrested and Perry (Raymond Burr) agrees to handle her defense. Future Star Trek costar George Takei appears in a supporting role.
