An aging Japanese-American, Minoru Tahashi (C.K.Huang), prepares his will with the help of his aide Kim Matsu (Haunani Minn). To perform all the litigious paperwork involved in a will; Minoru hires Alex Kelsey (DonPorter) as his attorney. Kelsey in turn, sets fire to Minour’s house,killing him. At the death of his father, the son Kazuo (Mako) arrives from San Francisco to claim the contents of his father’s safe-deposit box. Kelsey knows of the legendary tales of a hidden two to three million dollars worth of gold bullion hidden by Minoru just after the attack on Pearl Harbor. He enlists the aide of Din Lee (Moe Keale) and his men to track down the millions and ship it off the island. At Minoru’s funeral, McGarrett has his own questions that he puts to former naval commander Reginald Blackwell (Lew Ayres) knowing he had a connection with Minoru from years past. Kazuo and Kim work together to hide facts from McGarrett and Five-O. For all her help, Kazuo double crosses Kim, killing her to make it appear that Lee’s hired muscle-boys have killed her. Kazuo calls Kelsey and arranges a deal with the gold, just between him and Kelsey. Once at Kelsey’s hotel, Kazuo kills him by tossing him out of his hotel window. McGarrett deduces that Minoru had hidden the gold bullion at a cabin sold to him by Blackwell. Kazuo also figures out where the gold is hidden. Kazuo takes Chin Ho Kelly captive while at the cabin. As the stand off continues with McGarrett talking to Kazuo as he holds Chin at gun point, Blackwell appears from the underbrush and shoots and wounds Kazuo. When the gold crate is brought out and opened, only three bars of gold are left after years of spending. Blackwell says that he and Minoru agreed that no one owned the gold. Together they used the money to set up scholarships and aided the elderly Japanese-American community. McGarrett smiles with that answer.
