However, Kyle soon discovers the Empire is concealing the true nature of a Rebel attack that destroyed his home village and killed his father.

When the Rebel Alliance offers him a dangerous mission to steal the plans to the Empire’s superweapon, the Death Star, Kyle finds his opportunity for retribution.
