Normal (Long) Version
300 years ago, a tiny golden seed was planted in darkness. It soon sprouted into the Tree of Hope. The tree was seen by few people, who kept going back to see it and its beauty. Years later, a town was built where the Tree of Hope reside named Teru. A builder of Teru wanted to do something wih the tree's power, and created the Light of Hope, which became the symbol of the city. Teru was full of lanterns and lights. But one day, Eternal Darkness' army attacked Teru, wanting to destroy all of the lights and cut down the Tree of Hope. A Pretty Cure member who resided near Teru, Cure Gleam, tried to defend the Tree of Hope. While the others kept destroying the lights, a girl named Dark Negro went against Cure Gleam. While strugling, she got strength and defeated Cure Gleam with her Negro Blade. The Tree of Hope faded and lost its power, light, and leaves. The people of Teru had to visit other cities and live there. Cure Gleam told Bright and Shining to find Pretty Cure, as she will take care of the townspeople, then later take on a civilan form. Bright and Shining left to find Pretty Cure. Nobody visited Teru for more than 300 years. It was complete darkness.
Kogane Hikari had strange dreams about the town and Cure Gleam. She drew Teru often and told people about its story, but nobody understood. She one day bumped into Kōkōtaru Karei. Hikari apologized, and, enormousy upset, asks her if she can tell Karei about a dream. Karei agrees and after Hikari finishes, she understands, which brightens Hikari up. She thanks Karei and befriends her. That day, the lights flickered once. The people became afraid. Hikari was, too. Meanwhile, Bright and Shining look for Pretty Cure. Bright spots Hikari and thinks that could be her. Shining, returning from her search, sees Hikari drawing and accidentally pushes Bright into Hikari's room. Bright sits like a statue. Hikari, thinking this is strange, looks out the window. She is surprised and asks why these creatures from her dreams have come. Bright and Shining look at each other. They explain that they come from Teru like Hikari dreamed, and they need to find Pretty Cure. Bright then explains Hikari is one of them, and gives her a Shining Compact and tells Hikari that is her transformation device. Then Shining gets strange vibes, and the two leave quickly. Hikari is left confused.
The next day, while Hikari was at a mall, the lights flickered again. Then the windows broke and a monster called Kurayami attacked the people. It started tearing apart the lights as well. Scared, Hikari started to run. She thought about yesterday and went to her house. She grabbed the Shining Compact and held it as she wished for the two to come again. Shining and Bright did arrive and introduced themselves. They explained what is happening, and then tell Hikari to take their Shining Light and then yell, "Pretty Cure, Eternal Shine!". Hikari does so and transforms into Cure Shine.
Like other past Cures, Hikari is shocked to see that they are right, and she is a Pretty Cure! She runs back to the mall and finds the Kurayami isn't there. She runs around, shocked at her own speeds, and finds the Kurayami at a food court in the mall. Hikari yells at the Kurayami at what it has done, and wants to fight it. She starts to dodge attacks, and tries to kick it, but she becomes trapped. During that time, Karei spots Cure Shine and decides to help her. She becomes Cure Gleam and saves Hikari. Cure Gleam wishes Hikari luck, and leaves. Bright tells Hikari to take her second item, her attack item, the Shining Charm, and put it in the Compact, then yell, "Shine Blinding!". Hikari does so and defeats the monster. Furious, a shadowy figure yells, then vanishes. Cure Shine wonders who that figure was.
Now, Cure Shine must defend Haeru, her town, find the other two cures, and destroy Eternal Darkness to bring light and peace once again to Haeru. Cure Shine also needs to restore Teru and heal the Tree of Hope. Can she do it?
