Jedi knight Anakin Skywalker's love for Pad- me proves to be his undoing. After seeing visions in the Force of her future death, he chooses to join the dark side of the Force in order to find a power to save her. But the dark side proves too powerful to resist, and he becomes the evil Sith lord Darth Vader. As the Republic falls and becomes the Empire, the galaxy's last hope rests Anakin and Padme's newborn children, born in secret – twins who will one day be heroes.
