Ash Lynx, a seventeen year-old leader of a street gang in New York City, is given a street address and a vial of an unknown substance by a mortally wounded man. The man speaks the words “banana fish” before dying — the same last words spoken by Ash’s brother Griffin, an Iraq War veteran who fired on his own squadron under mysterious circumstances, and who is now in a vegetative state. Meanwhile, Eiji Okumura, a Japanese photographer's assistant, arrives in New York to complete a report on street gangs.
Sometime during the Iraq war, soldiers are talking amongst themselves before a man called Griffin, without warning lifts an assault rifle and shoots into them. After he is incapacitated by his friend Max Lobo, he simply mutters the words "Banana Fish."
Ash Lynx comes across a dying man in an alleyway. He tries to help him before the man uses his final words to tell Ash a street address, and hand him a vial of an unknown substance. Ash is shocked to hear him utter the same nonsensical term "Banana Fish" he has heard before dying.
