A greedy developer has placed huge machines to suck dry a part of the ocean near Tokyo so he can put luxury condos there. After a storm, a giant egg washes up on the beach nearby and is immediately put on public display. The developer's plans go awry when he disrupts Godzilla's rest and the monster goes stomping through Tokyo again. It's up to the elderly Mothra, and then to its two offspring, to save Tokyo from destruction.

The "Frontier Missile" sequence is the only example of kaiju footage contained in foreign release prints but not in the original cut.

This footage was filmed at AIP's request and originally excluded from the Japanese cut to keep out the very patriotic American iconage of the scene. It is now featured as bonus material on the Japanese laserdisc. See more
