This was an old-fashioned wild-west stage coach bank heist story.
This time it involves a rogue droid named CZ-1G5 as the primary suspect. There are chases, shoot-outs and even a stand-off between the good guy and the bad guy.
I loved it.
Even though it was set in the Star Wars universe it could have been played out in any genre.
I don't know if it helped me understand the new movie in any way. The previous short did that very well by using a setting from the movie in it's narrative. This one was so generic that it did not matter that it was a Star Wars story.
So, if it's purpose was to fill out the movie, it did not accomplish that. But as pure entertainment it sure was a fun read.
