The movie starts with Sai tracking a group of Bloodline Ninja and suddenly was ambushed by a strange bird. Naruto rushed to save him ignoring Kakashi's orders to retreat. Naruto eventually finds Sai injured. He was ambushed by two lion monsters. Sakura and Kakashi arrives and deals with the monsters.

The scene moves to a party being held for Naruto's and Sai's recovery by Shikamaru. Sakura finds out and dragged them back to the hospital. Kakashi drops by to give Sai a book on Women and give Naruto the two bells that were part of the first drill they did. He told Naruto that he had smashed them and he wants him to fix it.

The scene moves again to Tsunade's room. They see an illusion in the sky of Hiruko stating that he has obtained the four Bloodline limits with his Chimera technique and once he obtains his fifth he will become invincible and start the Fourth Ninja World War. The scene moves later that night where Hiruko visits Kakashi in a dream and awaken the Puppet Curse he had placed on him 10 years ago. The scene moves again, Kakashi reporting to Tsunade what had happened. Hiruko had chosen Kakashi to become his fifth Bloddline sacrifice. Kakashi asks Tsunade to use a jutsu on him.

The scene moves to Shikamaru visiting Asuma's grave. As he was walking back, he meets Kakashi also visiting the grave of Obito and Rin. Kakashi tells Shikamaru of the situation and tells Shikamaru to tell Naruto not to follow him. The scene moves to Naruto eating Ramen. As he walks back he sees Kakashi forcing his way out of the village. Naruto follows him and was stopped by Shikamaru. The scene moves to Tsunade announcing that Kakashi has gone rogue and orders that nobody follows him. Sakura overhears Tsunade conversing with Shikamaru about Kakashi's plan and goes to talk to Naruto who was jailed by Shikamaru. Sakura frees Naruto and they both pursue Kakashi. After hearing this, Shikamaru hold a team with Neji, Hinata, Lee, TenTen, Kiba, Shino, Choji, and Ino to bring back Naruto and Sakura.

Tsunade holds a meeting with the sand to ask for help. On the way the sand was ambushed by Hiruko. The sand thinking that the Leaf had done it decides to attack the Leaf.

When they finally caught up with them one of the subordinates of Hiruko attacked them diverting the attention so Naruto and Sakura can flee. Team Guy volunteers to handle him as the others move on ahead. Another subordinate appear and Team Kurenai decides to hold them off. Finally an ambush by another subordinate keeps Team Asuma busy as Naruto and Sakura with Sai joining them moves on ahead.

They were stopped by Gaara. A flashback tells that he had escaped the ambush while Jaraiya saved the others. Jaraiya tells Gaara about Naruto and gave him the choice to believe in him or stop him. Gaara decides that Naruto is being too idealistic and attacks him. Naruto tells Sakura and Sai to go on ahead and that he will handle this. They fought until finally Naruto was able to get past the sand barriers and punch Gaara in the face.

The scene moves to the three subordinate's battle. As the Hiruko's subordinate began to falter, the leader summoned the other two and merged to form one monster. The others caught up with Team Asuma and held off the beast as Shikamaru goes on ahead. Shikamaru sees Gaara and Gaara says that Naruto's emotions have gotten into him and he let him go.

Naruto, Sakura, and Sai finally catches up with Kakashi along with Shikamaru. They find out that Kakashi is going to use his Mangenkyou when he has been absorbed and suck both him and Hiruko into another dimension. Naruto gets mad at this and rushes on to stop Kakashi. They meet with Hiruko who reveals to him that he was once a Hidden Leaf Shinobi. He was friends with the Three Sannin but wasn't as talented. In order to become strong he starts studying the Chimera technique. He finds the secret of combining Bloodline Limits through the Solar Eclipse. When Naruto tries to stop him he was thrown back by a huge chakra blast.

When they reawaken Naruto tells Shikamaru that he doesn't want the children of the village to think that we need to sacrifice in order to win. Shikamaru understands and lets Naruto go. When Naruto had gotten there, Kakashi was already absorbed and as the Mangenkyou activates, leaving Hiruko paralyzed, Naruto with the Shadow Clone Jutsu starts making a lot of rasengans and blows up Hiruko leaving a hole for him to go into. He grabs Kakashi and takes him out. Hiruko thanks Naruto that he saved him and they start to fight. Hiruko summons the humongous beast that holds up the others and Sakura, Sai, and Shikamaru handles it while Kakashi and Naruto battles Hiruko. The others finally catches up and with their combined powers finally defeats the beast. Hiruko keeps sucking Kakashi's Rakiri and Naruto's rasengans. Finally Naruto uses the Fuuton, Rasen Shuriken and Hiruko was unable to absorb it. Naruto finally beats Hiruko.

Hiruko asks if he was wrong for doing this. Kakashi replies that it was wrong to focus on being invincible by yourself that friends is what makes you invincible. Hiruko finally realizes this with the vision of the three sannins and dies with a smile. The scene moves to Naruto returning the bell to Kakashi. Kakashi remembering Obito tells Naruto he is just like him. The others watching assumes that he is bonding with Naruto as a homosexual couple. Naruto hearing this freaks out and the movie ends with Kakashi chasing after Naruto saying that it was just a misunderstanding.
