The Illusionary Ruins at the Depths of the Earth) is a 2005 film directed by Hirotsugu Kawasaki and co-written by Kawasaki and Yuka Miyata.

Plot

The movie opens with a battle taking place at night on a desolate seaside beach between Sand Ninja and mysterious warriors wearing bulky suits of armor. Despite their best efforts, the Sand Ninja are slowly overwhelmed by the sheer strength of their mysterious opponents. The timely arrival of reinforcements led by Kankuro and Gaara turns the tide, with Kankuro slicing apart a suit of armor with his puppet, and Gaara dispatching a large number of enemies en mass with his signature Desert Imperial Funeral. However when Gaara orders the Sand Ninja to shine a flare at the retreating enemies, a large warship appears. The ship then opens fire with its guns, and Gaara's sand armor barely manages to protect his comrades.

The movie stars Naruto Uzumaki, Shikamaru Nara, and Sakura Haruno as they deliver a lost pet ferret(that Naruto unwittingly confuses for a cat, as he had never seen a ferret before) to its village. However, a mysterious knight called Temujin intercepts them and they fight, causing both Temujin and Naruto to be knocked off a cliff by the massive power caused by Naruto's Rasengan and Temujin's Rising Thunder. As Shikamaru and Sakura realize what has happened to Naruto, a giant ship appears.

Naruto wakes up to find himself bandaged and traveling in a caravan led by Kahiko and Emina. He also finds Temujin asleep beside him. When Temujin awakens, Nerugui (the lost pet ferret which was owned by Kahiko) seems to be attracted to him. The caravan is part of a moving country.

Meanwhile, Sakura and Shikamaru split up to search for Naruto. Shikamaru spies on the fortress and finds a lab with children in capsules. Two women with similar armor to what Temujin was wearing are talking about the Gelel Stone.

The movie revolves mostly around a special mineral called the Gelel Stone, which has a strong and mysterious power. There was once a clan that could control the stone's powers (the traveling caravan and Temujin are part of this clan), but they were destroyed because of fights for the stone.

Temujin is working for his Lord, Master Haido, who has his group searching for the Stones of Gelel, so that he can create a 'utopia', a world free from war and strife. But he also tells his group that sacrifices are for the greater good.

When Naruto meets Haido, he at first believes him. Naruto accompanies Temujin, Ranke, and Fugai to the area where the fight between the Sand Ninjas and Haido's forces took place. During the fight, Kamina duels with Kankuro while Ranke fights Gaara. When Ranke is killed by Gaara, Kamina escapes. The caravan that Naruto was saved by has been attacked as Fugai threatens Kahiko for the location of the Stones of Gelel. Shikamaru and Sakura end up repelling her.

Temujin learns that Kahiko knows where the Stones of Gelel are. When he tries to capture Kahiko, he is subdued by Shikamaru's Shadow Possession Jutsu as Naruto catches up. Shikamaru interrogates Temujin about Haido's plot. After Shikamaru manages to get some answers, Temujin uses a smokescreen and kidnaps Kahiko and one of the children from the caravan. Temujin forces Kahiko to lead him to a cave where the stones are sealed away. Naruto follows him to try and stop him with Nerugui leading the way. Temujin sends the kid he abducted on his way as he has Kahiko lead him into the gave. But Haido, Fugai, and Kamina also follow him to the cave. This leads to a confrontation between Haido and Naruto's group as Naruto finally realizes Haido's evil intentions. He is disgusted that Haido and his followers are willing to sacrifice their friends and other innocents for their cause. He angrily yells that dreams that sacrifice friends are nothing but garbage, surprising Temujin. Kahiko triggers a mechanism that takes himself and Temujin to the chamber below, where the entrance to the mines of Gelel are, with the intent to destroy them. Haido angrily follows with several armed soldiers after smacking Naruto aside. Kamina challenges Shikamaru, and Sakura challenges Fugai before the latter can follow Haido with the ship. Naruto follows after Kahiko, Temujin, and Haido.

Once there, Haido reveals that he has a piece of Gelel Stone which he uses to attack Kahiko. Eventually Temujin, surprised by Haido's cruel words and behavior, defends Kahiko, which angers Haido. Eventually Naruto shows up and saves Kahiko. Temujin is finally so appalled by Haido's willingness to kill Naruto and Kahiko and call it a "noble sacrifice" that he refuses to kill them when Haido orders him to. He realizes that the shadowy figure he had seen in the ruins of his house after his parents' death was Haido. Haido then admits that he was the one that killed Temujin's family and then used their son like a pawn for all those years. He then attacks Temujin and destroys his piece of Gelel Stone, tossing him aside and leaving him lying on the ground, weak and horrified by what he has done. At this point Naruto intervenes and attempts to defeat Haido.

While Naruto and Haido are fighting, Shikamaru fights Kamina and gets help in vanquishing her from Kankuro. Sakura duels with Fugai and ends up crushing her under large chimes. Sakura, Shikamaru, Kankuro, and Gaara then unload the unconscious children from the ship.

Naruto manages to hit Haido with a Rasengan but it has no effect. He then urges Temujin to help him fight, and Temujin agrees, Naruto's earlier words about friendship having inspired him. With Temujin's help Naruto creates two Rasengans (one from the Nine Tailed Fox's chakra and another from Gelel). This defeats Haido, but also breaks open the mines of Gelel. As the evil chakra is unleashed, Kahiko reveals that the seal on the floor will banish the magic, but the person acitivating the seal will be sacrficed. Temujin decides to do it to atone for his mistakes, and knocks out Naruto when the latter protests to this. Temujin then activates the seal and the Gelel power, along with Temujin, begins to enter a black hole. While unconscious, Naruto has a dream about himself and Sasuke silently walking past each other, and wakes up with his Nine-Tails whiskers and red eyes. While Temujin prepares to die, Naruto uses a chain of Shadow Clones to pull them to safety, refusing to let Temujin die. A little bit of Gelel chakra makes land over the black hole that gives birth to new life. Temujin awakens on some of this land next to a still-unconscious Naruto.

Later, Temujin leaves with the other children stating that he will end all war. Kahiko is sad that Nerugui is going with Temujin. The credits show Naruto and Temujin seeing each other one last time as Temujin's ship leaves and make fists of victory.
