In Tokyo Bay the Japan Coast Guard finds a mysterious pleasure boat adrift, empty of all inhabitants. Just then, as the Coast Guard is still exploring the ship, the water begins shaking, and a huge underwater explosion takes place, causing a cave in at an underground highway, and widespread panic. Soon a bizarre monster appears and runs amok in Tokyo. The Japanese government is shocked and, while a number of helicopters are called out by the JSDF, the prime minister does not allow them to fire, and the bizarre monster escapes back into the sea. Japan is at a loss as to how to respond when Kayoko Ann Paterson, an American who represents the United States government, appears with information about the monster, which she calls Godzilla. The Americans are now offering to work with the Japanese to deal with this enormous threat. When Godzilla appears again, he is more powerful than ever, and the combined might of the JSDF and American bombers cannot stop him as he wreaks havoc across Tokyo, razing the city to ruins before going dormant in the middle of the city. The UN, led by the United States, determines that Godzilla will awaken in 360 hours, and unilaterally decide to nuke the monster before that happens, effectively giving Tokyo two weeks to evacuate the population before doomsday. However, the Japanese, led by the clever Rando Yaguchi, desperately search for an alternate means to destroy Godzilla without atomizing Tokyo in the process. Can they find a way to destroy the mysterious, awesomely powerful monster before it's too late?
