The Atreides noble family is given the right to live and work in the planet Arrakis, also called Dune, where Spice, the most valuable resource in the galaxy is mined. But it is a poisoned gift, as the Emperor and the Harkonnen family are plotting the Atreides' demise. Amidst all is Paul Atreides, heir to the Atreides family and bearer of a prophecy that will free the inhabitants of Dune.
