This swash-buckling tale follows the quest of Captain Jack Sparrow(Johnny Depp), a savvy pirate, and Will Turner(Orlando Bloom), a resourceful blacksmith, as they search for Elizabeth Swann(Keira Knightley). Elizabeth, the daughter of the governor(Jonathan Pryce) and the love of Will's life, has been kidnapped by the feared Captain Barbossa(Geoffrey Rush). Little do they know, but the fierce and clever Barbossa has been cursed. He, along with his large crew, are under an ancient curse, doomed for eternity to neither live, nor die. That is, unless a blood sacrifice is made.
