Godzilla Minus One

In 1945 at the end of World War II , kamikaze pilot Koichi Shikishima escapes his suicide mission and lands on Odo Island at a Japanese repair base claiming his plane had technical issues. That night Godzilla, a large dinosaur-like creature arrives from the ocean and destroys the island, killing almost everyone on it, and Koichi fails to protect the mechanics in his plane. Upon returning home after the war Koichi has nothing, no family, no honor and no income, he takes in Noriko whose parents also died in the bombing, together they raise an orphaned baby, Akiko. Soon after Koichi finds a dangerous well paying job, disposing of naval mines left in the ocean from the war, though now Godzilla has shown up and begins to wreak havoc on land, causing more mayhem and destruction than has already come. Struggling with his guilt and shame Koichi joins a band of Japanese Naval men and government officials who devise a plan to fight back and hopefully destroy the creature before it wipes out Tokyo.
