Drenched in the a.m. sweat of local rock-and-roll heroes, and in the blood of gaping knife wounds, BLUES HARP hits the ground running as Kenji, a brazen and power-hungry yakuza, desperately tries to escape a rival gang who are hunting him down on the deserted streets of Yokosuka. Ducking into the back alley of a club blaring an irrepressible second-hand blues, Kenji chances upon meeting the establishment’s proprietor, Chuji. The son of an African American G.I. and an Okinawan native, Chuji is also a reluctant, part-time pusher answerable to Kenji’s would-be murderers. Motivated by some mixture of spite, compassion, and possibly sexual desire, Chuji helps Kenji elude his pursuers, capping a night of chivalry that began earlier when he rescued a female patron, Tokiko, from sexual harassment and, potentially, rape. An intriguing love rectangle quickly forms - Tokiko moves in with the barkeep while Chuji settles for admiring Kenji from afar, all the while oblivious to the affections of his own possessive male underling, Kaneko. When Kenji renews his quest for power, his feelings for Chuji unwittingly tangle the pusher into a web of conflicting allegiances that not only threatens both their individual dreams for success but their lives as well!
