American martial artist Casey Bowman may be an expert practitioner in the art of Ninjitsu, but he likes to live a more peaceful life in his Japanese home with his wife Namiko Takeda who happens to be pregnant with their first baby. Their family paradise is brutally ripped apart, however, when Casey returns home to find her viciously murdered; strangled to death with some sort of barbed wire.

Eric Lomax was a British Officer in World War II who found himself a prisoner of war after he and several of his comrades were ambushed in Singapore. Forced to work on the Thailand-Burma Railway, he was severely tortured by an interpreter by the name of Takashi Nagase to the point where it tormented him throughout the rest of his life, psychologically damaging him for many years. Several years on, his new wife Patti demands to be given an explanation as to what happened in his life to make him so scarred, and she is informed by his friend Finlay of his horrific trauma. After Eric discovers in a newspaper that Nagase is still living, Patti convinces him to make a trip back to Japan to confront his intimidator once and for all and finally end his lifelong ordeal. However, things don't quite go according to plan and Eric is faced with either revenge or acceptance and reconciliation.
