Young Luke Skywalker vegetates in the wilderness, he and his uncle are engaged in agriculture, but Luke secretly dreams of the cosmos. Literally, two fairly battered droids fall on his head.

From his lips the boy learns about what is happening in the world, and what role is destined for him by fate.
