Years later after the Fourth Great Ninja War, Naruto Uzumaki achieves his dream of becoming the Seventh Hokage, after he and Hinata Hyuga married, and now oversees a new generation in the Ninja World. They have two children: Boruto and Himawari. Boruto has become part of a ninja team led by Naruto’s protege Konohamaru Sarutobi, along with Sasuke Uchiha and Sakura Haruno’s daughter Sarada, and Orochimaru’s artificial son Mitsuki. Feeling that Naruto is placing his duties over his family, Boruto becomes upset at him for missing Himawari’s birthday. Boruto meets Sasuke, when he returns to the village to warn Naruto about the impending threat. Boruto manages to convince Sasuke to teach the Rasengan to him for the upcoming Chunin Exam. Boruto uses Katasuke’s inventing device called the Kote, but Naruto disqualifies Boruto for cheating the exam. The two have an argument until Momoshiki and Kinshiki Ōtsutsuki, the figures Sasuke warned Naruto of, appear and abduct Naruto, so they can use Kurama, a creature sealed inside his body, to revitalize the dying Shinju from the dimension which they came from.
Seeing his father risking his life to protect everyone, the repentant Boruto convinces Sasuke and the Five Kages to join them to make amends for Naruto. After Boruto, Sasuke and the Kages arrive in the other dimension to save Naruto, Momoshiki turns Kinshiki into a chakra fruit and he ingests to increase his strength, overpowering everyone due to Katasuke’s interference. As Sasuke distracts Momoshiki, a weakened Naruto lends his remaining chakra to Boruto and he uses a giant Rasengan to defeat Momoshiki. Though dying, noting his killer’s untapped potential, Momoshiki lives long enough to have a private discussion with Boruto and warns him that he soon will face much tribulation later on in his life. Without knowing what the future holds for him, Boruto accepts his fate.
