What is Dune About?
In a feudal interstellar world, the Atreides family is one of many noble houses that rule the politically conflicted and deeply divided universe. They are the sole rulers of the ocean planet of Caladan and are relatively peaceful people. But when Duke Leto is asked by the Emperor to relocate to the desert planet, Arrakis, the family patriarch of the house of Atreides, knows what’s is in store for him there. However, despite the political risks, he moves to the dangerous planet, which is the only source of a rare drug called melange (a.k.a spice). The substance helps in space navigation by providing foresight and multidimensional awareness, improves human cognitive abilities, and extends human life.
The accessibility to such a rare resource makes Arrakis a target of several conflicting noble houses. When Duke Leto and Atreides arrive on the desert planet, they soon realize that they are a victim of pathetic political scheming, and they must fight back for their survival.
