In the far future, all interstellar trade depends on a spice found only on the desert world of Arrakis. When Paul Atreides and his family are sent to govern the planet, the stage is set for a tale of betrayal, murder and prophecy that will reveal the planet's secrets...
It's not for everyone, but if you don't mind the brain-bending confusion of the plot and occasional feeling of '80s high camp, this isn't as bad as its detractors would have it.
