The film was created by Director/Co-Writer & Producer Fed Wetherbee and Art Director/Co-Writer & Producer PJ Tamayo with an all volunteer cast and crew and takes place mostly 1 year BBY. That’s Before the Battle of Yavin or, before Star Wars: A New Hope, for those of you who aren’t familiar with the Galactic Standard Calendar.

A young boy watches the Jedi who saved his people be killed by the very clones who once fought by his side. Years later, as a member of a small insurgency against the empire he and his team hatch a new plan to take back their planet by drawing the attention of the newly formed rebel alliance.

Armed with the fallen Jedi’s light saber, he and his team battle to strike fear into the local imperial garrison, and overthrow their despotic governor. Their silent attacks give birth to a legend, and the people speak of a phantom Jedi whose spirit has returned.

As the story spreads they manage to draw attention to their forgotten corner of the galaxy, but who will arrive first, the rebel alliance or the empire?
