After a failed attempt to rescue his former first mate, Joshamee Gibbs, (Kevin McNally), Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) is brought before King George II (Richard Griffiths) in London, who wants Jack to guide an expedition to the Fountain of Youth before the Spanish locate it. Heading the expedition is Jack's old nemesis, Captain Hector Barbossa (Geoffrey Rush), now a privateer in service to the Royal Navy after losing his leg and ship, the Black Pearl. Jack escapes, but his father, Captain Teague (Keith Richards), finds him and warns Jack about the Fountain's tests. He also reveals that someone is impersonating Jack. The impostor is Angelica (Penélope Cruz), Jack's former lover and daughter of the ruthless pirate Blackbeard (Ian McShane), who practices voodoo magic and, with his sword, possesses supernatural powers. Jack is taken aboard Blackbeard's ship, the Queen Anne's Revenge, and forced to lead the way to the Fountain and find two silver chalices that once belonged to Juan Ponce de León, both of which are believed to be aboard his lost ship. The Fountain's water must be drunk simultaneously from the two chalices. The person drinking from the chalice containing a mermaid's tear has their life extended, while the other dies, their life drained from their body. Meanwhile, Gibbs, having memorized and destroyed Jack's map, barters with Barbossa to guide him to the Fountain. Blackbeard wants the Fountain's power to circumvent his predestined fatal encounter with "a one-legged man" and sets a course for Whitecap Bay, where they are attacked by a vicious horde of mermaids. Blackbeard manages to capture a mermaid (Àstrid Bergès-Frisbey) with whom Philip Swift (Sam Claflin), a captive missionary, falls in love and names Syrena. Blackbeard then sends Jack to retrieve the chalices from de León's ship......
