Synopsis

Danger in the sea! Dragons are coming! The little fish scramble in fear around the coral reef off Australia's Kangaroo Island, while the big fish make big promises of protecting their food supply—promises even they're not sure they can keep. But when these new "terrors" arrive, they turn out to be the Leafy Sea Dragon, who dreams of dancing to the rhythm of the sea, and the Weedy Sea Dragon, who just wants to avoid being some big fish's lunch. Can these little sea dragons learn to dance, stay off the menu and make some new friends in the process?
