During a hurricane, a giant egg is washed off Infant Island, & as you might know, Infant Island is the home of giant butterfly Mothra ...

Eventually, the egg is washed ashore in Japan, & soon enough businesmen Kumuyama (Yoshifumi Tajima) & Torahata (Kenji Sahara) buy it from the village of fishers where it has stranded & plan to make it accessible to the public ... but for a price. & it seems only newspaper reporter Sakai (Akira Takarada), his photographer Yoka (Yuriko Hoshi) & scientist Miura (Hiroshi Koizumi) oppose the plan - & of course the Cosmos (Emi Ito, Yumi Ito), the tiny twin fairies from Infant Island, who have even brought Mothra to state their claim.

But it seems the five of them (six counting Mothra) are to weak to fight big business, so the Cosmos & Mothra leave for their island.

However, soon afterwards, Godzilla surfaces & brings destruction to all of Japan, & now Sakai, Yoka & professor Miura figure the only one who can halp is Mothra, even if it might not be too easy to persuade her & the Cosmos.

Still, our heroic trio flys to Infant Island ... but is welcomed with hostility by the natives, & even the Cosmos refuse to help, since the Japanese (in general) failed to give them their egg back. Only a compassionate speech by Yoka (complete wiht a sudden outburst of tears) can convince them to help out after all. But, the Cosmos remark, Mothra is weak & will die soon.

Shortly thereafter, back in Japan, Godzilla is already coming too close for comfort to the egg, when Mothra finally arrives, attacks & does her best to defeat Godzilla. & she is quite efficient, too, until she lays down & dies, just like the Cosmos have predicted.

Now Godzilla continues his rampage, & neither the army's best artillery nor electrocution can stop him. But mankind has still an ace up its sleeve, the egg. The Cosmos soon sing it open (Mothra eggs are always hatched by singing) & out come ... 2 Mothras (in their caterpillar state of course), & they immediately take up pursuit & face Godzilla on a nearby island, where they spin him into a cocoon & drop him into the water. Then they, & the Cosmos, leave for Infant Island, & the earth (once more) is saved.


The film starts out like a virtual remake of Mosura/Mothra, with even the main human characters - a journalist, his female photographer & a scientist against big business - being the same. It takes quite some time before Godzilla is thrown into the mix, for no apparent reason actually, but he takes things into a different direction, culminating in monsters on rampage & battling each other.

Nothing really new here, actually, & of course this film can compete with neither Mothra nor the original Godzilla in quality, but it's good mindless fun, with the human subplot & the monster action carefully outbalanced.
