The Gamera saga continues with this installment that finds the hero to children everywhere doing battle with an evil dino-lizard named Zedus. A young boy named Toru (Ryo Tomioka) is walking along the beach when he discovers a most unusual egg. When the egg hatches to reveal an adorable flying turtle, Toru names the creature "Toto" and attempts to hide it from his estranged father, still grief-stricken over the recent loss of his beloved wife. Though all evidence points to "Toto" being a baby Gamera, Toru refuses to believe the truth until the appearance of an enormous creature named Zedus unleashes the rapidly-growing terrapin's latent superpowers. Now, as Zedus carves a swath of destruction all across Tokyo, Toto's true identity is revealed and the two enormous monsters face off in an earth-shaking battle of epic proportions. One of the first kaiju films ever to be penned by a woman (Yukari Tatsui wrote the screenplay), Gamera the Brave is the twelfth entry in the long running Gamera film series.
