A Godzilla time-line.
1954 The fishing boat Fukuryu-maru (Lucky Dragon) makes big news in Japan: The boat accidentally strays into a nuclear test site, its crew becomes ill and one man dies. A nationwide recall of tuna is ordered. Meanwhile, Tanaka, with the help of former documentary filmmaker and Akira Kurosawa assistant Ishiro Honda, brings his dream to life: "Gojira," featuring radiation-stricken sailors, is a box-office hit in Japan.
