Set in the distant future, Dune tells the story of Paul Atreides, whose family has control of the desert planet Arrakis. Planets in different parts of the galaxy are ruled by rival feudal families. Control of the desert planet Arrakis, the sole producer of a precious resource, is in high demand among noble families. This source, called “spice”, while offering high consciousness and a long life span, also brings with it very serious side effects. It is also the spice that aids in navigating interstellar paths. Paul and his family are set up by the Harkonen family, feudal rivals who want to obtain this resource. As a result of this trap, Paul’s family is scattered and on the run. As Paul starts a rebellion to regain control of his family on Arrakis, he seizes the possibility that he could change the course of the entire universe.
