An American reporter, Steve Martin, is brought from the ruins of Tokyo to a hospital filled with maimed and wounded citizens. Emiko finds him among the victims and attempts to find him a doctor. Martin recalls stopping over in Tokyo, where a series of ship disasters catches his attention. When a survivor finally washes up on Odo Island, Martin flies there with Tomo Iwanaga, a representative of the Japanese security forces, and learns of the island inhabitants’ belief in a sea monster god known to them as Godzilla.
