A hurricane brews in the Pacific, grounding all military aircraft. The storm awakens an ancient predator from a decades-long slumber, a Kaiju bent on ravaging Tokyo. Storm conditions and a treaty banning nuclear weapons hinder offensive capabilities. A Joint Task Force turn to U.S. Marine fighter pilots and Master Gunnery Sergeant James Penton to tackle the monster. Meanwhile, a Navy SEAL operation is underway in North Korea, with a mission to disable an old Soviet missile. After conventional weapons fail to stymie the destructive beast, leaders turn to Penton as a last-ditch effort to thwart the Kaiju, and prevent further death and devastation. Will the Marines prevail, or become victims of the creature?
