A mystical missing shrine has led a beautiful Okinawan girl, Taki, to Los Angeles to seek the help of karate master Miyagi in recovering the relic. With his young American apprentice, Daniel, in tow, Miyagi and Taki return to Okinawa, where they learn that the ancient shrine was stolen from an old fishing village. To seek the shrine is to travel a road of danger . . . and Miyagi, Taki, and Daniel, the Karate Kid, are on that road.
