Following the events of the Dragon Ball Z television series, after the defeat of Majin Buu, a new power awakens and threatens humanity.

Beerus, an ancient and powerful God of Destruction, searches for Goku after hearing rumors of the Saiyan warrior who defeated Frieza.

Realizing the threat Beerus poses to their home planet, the Z-fighters must find a way to stop him before it’s too late.

Only Goku, humanity’s last hope, can ascend to the level of a legendary Super Saiyan God and stop Beerus’s from destroying Earth, and possibly the entire universe!
