In Dragon Ball Z: Light of Hope, Gohan and Trunks fight against the unstoppable Androids #17 and #18 and try to save as many human lives as possible. The young Trunks must grow up quickly and learn from his mentor, Gohan; but with battles to fight on both the outside and inside, how long can they endure, and where will they find a light of hope?

After a successful crowd funding campaign, the film went silent while the visual effects were being completed, but the film is a true success story of a fan who just wanted to tell a Dragon Ball Z story the right way, with good production values (which are quite impressive for an independent production).
