The film’s plot centers on Uta, the world’s most beloved singer whose voice has been described as “otherworldly”, who is famous for hiding her own identity when performing. She will now, for the first time, reveal herself to the world in a live concert. With the Navy watching closely, the venue is filled with fans, including excited pirates and the Straw Hats led by Luffy, who simply came to enjoy her sound performance. The story begins with the shocking revelation that she is the daughter of the enigmatic Shanks.

In the previews, a childhood friendship between Luffy and Uta is observed, which will be vital for the premise. Beyond mentioning that it is an independent anime film, it will be necessary to have certain knowledge to enjoy it in its entirety. Both the protagonist and the villain of the Whole Cake Island arc will appear, as well as abilities and revelations that have not been seen on the show.
