An ominous power has risen and along with it, the youngest among shinobi have begun to disappear. The youngest, yet most talented of genin have gone missing without leaving so much of a trace. While the elders believe they have been kidnapped from their beds at night, there have been no clues of resistance... no struggle. For such talented genin to be taken without a fight is what they find most perplexing. With limited clues, the kage and jounin have begun investigating the situation.
Meanwhile, young shinobi would begin to awaken in a colorless foreign desert which is apparently void of life. The sand dunes would seem to expand infinitely. Will they be able to find their way home?
