But their island also holds an incredible secret: dragons live there!

When evil boss The Pitbull finds out, he decides that he wants one for himself. Get ready to be swept away on an unforgettable journey as Flynn and Paddy's world is turned upside down. Will their bravery and skill be enough to protect the dragons from The Pitbull's clutches?
