A tale of adventure set during the 17th Century in the Caribbean Sea.
For the roguish yet charming Captain Jack Sparrow, the crystalline
waters of the Caribbean, like the high seas the world over, present a
vast playground where adventure and mystery abound. But Jack's idyllic
life capsizes after his nemesis, the wily Captain Barbossa, steals his
ship, the Black Pearl, and later attacks the town of Port Royal,
kidnapping the Governor's beautiful daughter, Elizabeth Swann.
Elizabeth's childhood friend, Will Turner, joins forces with Jack to
commandeer the fastest ship in the British fleet, the HMS Interceptor,
in a gallant attempt to rescue her and recapture the Black Pearl. The
duo and their crew are pursued by Elizabeth's betrothed, the debonair,
ambitious Commodore Norrington, aboard the HMS dauntless. Unbeknownst to
Will, there is a curse that has doomed Barbossa and his crew to live
forever as the undead--when exposed to moonlight, they are exposed to
living skeletons. The curse they carry can be broken, only if a
once-plundered treasure is restored.
