Synopsis

There is an island where dragons still roam. A Jurassic type underworld where ancient warlords still rule. Where they fight for supremacy; where they fight to survive. Komodo Island - deep in the remote basin of the Pacific Ocean - is an ancient Kingdom of fire and brimstone. Here, a string of 452 volcanoes erupt from the ocean bed. Known as "The Ring of Fire" it's the perfect habitat for dragons. Komodo Dragons! The largest living lizard on the planet with 34 million years of survival in his DNA. It s no surprise that he's still known as a dragon since he has the presence of an ancient gladiator. He's armoured in claws and scales, but instead of spitting fire, he spits deadly venom.
