A gigantic egg appears on the shore as the monster Godzilla rises out of the mud in the aftermath of a typhoon off the coast of Japan. Tiny twin girls then appear, carried from their nearby radioactive atomic island by Mothra (The Thing) to retrieve their egg. Unable to persuade local promoters, who envision the egg as a major tourist attraction, to let them carry it off, the twins and Mothra return home emptyhanded. Godzilla, meanwhile, is on the rampage; and a local scientist, a photographer, and a reporter enlist the aid of Mothra, who is no match for Godzilla and soon dies. Mothra, however, has hatched the egg, and two enormous caterpillars emerge to envelop the monster in their sticky fluid. Godzilla topples from a cliff to his death in the sea below.
