After being falsely accused of attempting to kill the Raikage, Naruto is sent to Blood Prison - an island penitentiary surrounded by deadly whirlpools. Designed for convicted shinobi, the facility is governed by the merciless warden Mui, whose iron rule has left the prisoners with no hope for escape. Binding the chakra of all inmates with the "Heavenly Prison" jutsu, he prevents them from using any ninja techniques. Naruto, rendered powerless, must now team up with fellow inmate Ryuuzetsu to unravel the truth behind the crime and try to prove his innocence. Will the young ninja and his ally be able to escape and free the prison from its dark history, or will they succumb to the despair of lifetime imprisonment?
