During the Korean war, an American soldier, Airman Joe Kelly (Red Buttons), falls in love with a Japanese maiden, Katsumi (Miyoshi Umeki). If he marries her, Joe will face a court-martial because of the Army's opposition to marriages between U.S. soldiers and Japanese women. His friend, Major Lloyd Gruver (Marlon Brando), is prejudiced but reluctantly agrees to be the best man at the wedding. Later, Lloyd falls in love with Japanese entertainer Hana-ogi (Miiko Taka) and overcomes his prejudice, which results in the Army stepping in and sending soldiers who marry Japanese women home without their spouses. In the case of Lloyd and Joe, one of the marriages ends in tragedy, while the other promises hope for the future.
