From what I can tell, it seems to be some kind of in-fighting between families and/or tribes and the Village Raya comes from gets taken over by the person with the short hair and Raya needs to fight to get it back. Maybe she loses the village when she is off on her quest to find the last Dragon in wich she will use in hopes to reunite the families/clans. Also, there is a shapeshifting dragon. Maybe I should have led with the shapeshifting part first. But having not being the only person looking for the Dragon, I'm sure this will just make the quest more difficult.
The fighting scenes look well animated and I liked the extending whip-like sword and the con-baby is cute and adorable. Raya has a fruit ninja moment which was cool, however, I hope it isn't too cheesy. Oh, what an amazing cast as well!
