The plot centers on Naruto as the Seventh Hokage, as Hidden Leaf Village is planning to host the Chunin Exams to train new shinobi from the village and from their allied villages. Among the entrants are Sasuke’s daughter, Sarada, Mitsuki, an exceptionally talented, yet mysterious shinobi and Boruto, Naruto’s talented, but impetuous son. Meanwhile Sasuke, who’s been on a mission in another dimension, appears before Naruto to warn of a strange impending threat. Shrouded with an evil aura, Momoshiki and Kinshiki appear and attempt to assassinate Naruto. Petrified, Boruto is shielded by Naruto, only to disappear in front of Boruto’s own eyes.
