Jedi Knight Anakin Skywalker and his Padawan Ahsoka Tano have been sent to the planet Taronda by the Jedi Council to secure raw materials for the Republic that are mined on Taronda. However, the Separatists also wish to secure the same raw materials for themselves. Soon, the Jedi's small force comes under a determined assault by the droid army.
It is during a strategic withdrawal that the two Jedi become separated when Ahsoka falls through a mineshaft crevice. Though desperate to find his Padawan, Anakin is reminded by Captain Rex that not only is his Padawan more than capable of looking after herself and as such he should have faith in her abilities, but they also face a greater problem as droid reinforcements arrive under the command of Asajj Ventress! Just as the droids attack, the Republic forces along with the native miners are able to raise a defensive shield to protect themselves.
While Rex signals for reinforcements, Ventress teases Anakin by claiming that she can sense Ahsoka's pain through the force and has dispatched some spider droids to retrieve her. At the bottom of the crevice, Ahsoka is indeed in pain as she has sprained her ankle during her fall. Utilising the force and the lessons Anakin has taught her, she is able to overcome her own pain and destroy the spider droids.
Meanwhile, Anakin and Asajj continue their battle of wills and force powers as Ventress attempts to deactivate the shield using the force. However, Ventress is distracted by news that Republic reinforcements have arrived and orders an immediate retreat by her droid forces. Ahsoka climbs out of the crevice and although initially expecting words of support and concern from Anakin, she is even more pleased to hear that her teacher had complete faith in her ability to survive the ordeal she faced.

This story occurs between 22 and 19 years before the Battle of Yavin.
