Angelica tells Jack that her real father is the notorious pirate Blackbeard. Through a series of events which are action packed, Jack is captured and taken aboard Blackbeard's ship where he is held prisoner. Blackbeard wants Jack to lead him to the Fountain of Youth, because he possess two special chalices which are needed for returning his youth to him. The legend states that a mermaids tear must be drunk from the chalice in order to regain youth. Blackbeard wants to capture the mermaid and drink her tear in order to turn back the hands of time. Jack's former partner Barbossa is also part of the adventure to find the legendary fountain, although his quest is separate from that of Blackbeards.
