Story

On the remote South Sea island of Sollgel, a United Nations research team is conducting weather-control experiments. But before the team can activate their weather-control machine, reporter Goro Masaki drops out of the sky on a parachute. He wants to observe the test, and the scientists have no choice but to accept his presence.
Goro claims to have seen a native girl. The others don’t believe him, and they continue on with plans to deep-freeze the tropical island with their device. But the experiment goes terribly wrong, releasing a radioactive storm that mutates life on the island.
Giant insects called Kamacuras and a gigantic spider called Kumonga terrorize the party. Goro meets the native girl, named Saeko. She leads them to safety in her cave home.
Meanwhile, an egg is discovered on the island. It hatches and a baby Godzilla emerges. The creature, called Minilla, is quickly adopted by Godzilla, who comes ashore. Godzilla protects Minilla from the giant insects and spiders and teaches him how to breathe fire.
The scientists repeat their experiment and summon a U.N. submarine. The island freezes, putting Minilla and Godzilla into a deep hibernation as the humans escape.
