Xin Long is like any ordinary ten-year-old girl. She prefers Wushu to studying, likes hanging out with her friends, and loves listening to her Ah Ma's stories. But when these stories tell of an ancient mythical beast that threatens to destroy the world, Xin Long realises that she is the only one who can stop it. Can she destroy this evil? As time flies by, Xin Long and her friends Shu Ping, Four Eyes, and dragon guardian Xiao Lan must unlock the secrets of ancient Chinese mythology to find a way to stop the end of the world. Dragonhearted captures the strength of friendship and shows how stories shape who we are.
