Following the fight with Beers the Destroyer, Goku and Vegeta are in training on Beers' world, under the guidance of his attendant, Whis. Meanwhile, with the earth at peace once again, Sorbet and Tagoma, two of the surviving members of the Freeza force, discover some of the Dragon Balls, which they use to revive the vanquished Freeza.
Once the galactic tyrant is resurrected, he begins plotting his revenge against Goku and the Saiyans. The newly reborn Freeza force advances on Earth, forcing Gohan, Piccolo, Kuririn and company to take on 1000 of their deadly soldiers. Goku and Vegeta challenge Freeza to their destined showdown, but Freeza has powered-up and now the battle of a lifetime is about to begin.
