Program Abstract: On an uninhabitaed island, United Nations scientists experiment with changing the climate, cooling desertr temperatures to provide more fertile land for growing crops. Unfortunately, the experiment takes an accidental tragic turn when a radioactive burst emits a thunderstorm of fire. Huge native praying mantises suddenly grow 160 feet, tearing the island apart --until they uncover a monstrous sized egg. The egg hatches and the shocked scientists are confronted by a baby Godzilla. The infant's screams bring his father to the rescue and now the original Godzilla and his son want revenge. What will it take to stop them?
