Naruto was only three the night everything changed.
He lost his parents, he lost his identity, and his baby brother became the Jinchūriki for the very thing that took them away from him. He began to build a new life after that night but after pushing himself one step too far, Naruto finds himself on a time limit.
He tries to balance his duty to his village, raising his brother and supporting his new family but as the Akatsuki rises and disaster strikes at the heart of the village, the pressure grows and Naruto struggles to stay afloat. With his circle of precious people growing and his rapid rise through the ranks, he finds it harder and harder to keep it together.
All Naruto wants is the best for the people around him and he will do whatever it takes to make it happen.
Even if it kills him.
