Complete plot and information about Dune
21,000 years in the future, humans have recently moved away from their roots and live widely scattered throughout the universe. Numerous planets offer the human race a new home. Nevertheless, the power lies with a few noble houses, which in no case want to lose their influence. Especially between the houses Atreides, Harkonnen and Corrino there is a relentless competition. A crucial role is played by the rare spice Spice, which enables people to develop their mental abilities in an indescribable way.
The only place where Spice is available is the desert planet Arrakis. There, the Fremen people live in adverse conditions and are regularly confronted with the appearance of enormous sandworms. Young Paul Atreides is also sent to Arrakis, where he is supposed to represent the interests of his family. However, the other houses have also put their representatives in place and are waiting to trap the newcomer, who may be the Messiah.
