What is Solo: A Star Wars Story about?

On the planet Corellia, orphans Han (Alden Ehrenreich) and Qi'ra (Emilia Clarke) escape a local gang. They bribe an Imperial officer with stolen fuel, known as coaxium, for passage on a transport, but Qi'ra is captured before she can board. Han vows to return for her and joins the Imperial Navy as a flight cadet, being given the name "Solo".
Three years later, Han is serving as an infantryman on Mimban after being expelled from the Imperial Flight Academy for insubordination. He encounters a group of criminals posing as Imperial soldiers led by Tobias Beckett (Woody Harrelson). Han attempts to blackmail Beckett into letting him join the gang, but Beckett has him arrested and thrown into a pit to be fed to a Wookiee prisoner named Chewbacca (Joonas Suotamo). Able to understand Chewbacca's language, Han persuades him to cooperate to escape. Beckett, aware of the usefulness of a Wookiee's strength, rescues and enlists them in the gang to steal a shipment of coaxium on Vandor-1. The plan fails when the Cloud Riders led by Enfys Nest (Erin Kellyman) arrive to hijack the shipment, resulting in the deaths of Beckett's wife Val (Thandie Newton) and another crewman, Rio, and the destruction of the coaxium.
Beckett reveals that he was ordered to steal the shipment for Dryden Vos (Paul Bettany), a high-ranking crime boss in the Crimson Dawn syndicate. Han and Chewbacca volunteer to help him steal another shipment to repay the debt. They travel to Vos's yacht where Han finds Qi'ra, who has joined Crimson Dawn as Vos's top lieutenant. Han suggests a risky plan to steal unrefined coaxium from the mines on Kessel; Vos approves but insists Qi'ra accompany the team. She leads them to Lando Calrissian (Donald Glover), a smuggler and pilot, who she hopes will lend them his ship, the Millennium Falcon. Han challenges Lando to a game of sabacc, with the wager being Lando's ship. Lando cheats to win but agrees to join the mission in exchange for a share of the profits.
