Sam's cousin Tad Kimura is a rising young star in the genre of martial arts pictures. Unfortunately, he dies unexpectedly while filming his latest motion picture. Quincy prepares to perform an autopsy on the body, but it is taken before he can perform the procedure. The reason is that due to strict Buddhist beliefs, the body can't be autopsied. Quincy agrees to do an external examination, but when several questions still persist he decides to go ahead with the autopsy, which causes not only conflict within the Japanese community, but also puts a strain on his close relationship with Sam.
