Starwars is a movie about a space galaxy where they have laser sticks and space airplanes, but they don't have google drive, so the princess has to save her secret plans inside a toy and throw the toy down at her brother Lucas, who lives on the planet "sand"
When Lucas's dad finds out about the toy, he kills Lucas's aunt and uncle, and then he kills Ben, and then he cuts off Lucas's hand just to fuck with him. Then Lucas cuts off his dad's hand and burns his dead body on the planet "trees"
