The official website describes the plot of the film as follows:
The story takes place on an island where Uta, the world’s favorite diva, performs for the first time in public. Uta’s singsong voice, with which she sings while hiding her true identity, has been described as “otherworldly”, and while the room is filled with Straw Hats led by Luffy, pirates, the marine and fans around the world who came to enjoy her voice, Uta’s voice is heard in a new light. The curtain rises on the story with the shocking revelation that she is “Shanks’ daughter!”
