[ Story ]

An American soldier is found drowned in Tokyo Bay. A year later while both the CID and the Japanese are still investigating, the U.S. Army suddenly declares the case closed. There have been several other deaths which seem to be connected with this case and these in turn seem to have something to do with the counterfeiting of U.S. currency. The authorities continue their investigations but the case becomes more and more complicated as deaths occur one after another.
