Picking up where the first movie left off, Will Turner and Elizabeth Swan are all set to be married. However the ceremony is interrupted when both are arrested for aiding in the notorious Captain Jack Sparrow's escape. The new captain, Beckett, will lift all charges, if Will can hunt down Jack and bring him back to Beckett, along with his magic compass. However, Jack is busy dealing with serious problems of his own.
Legend has it that a tortured soul called Davy Jones lives beneath the sea with The Kraken, a terrible sea beast at his command. Unfortunately for Jack this particular legend is very real. Years ago, he made a deal with Davy Jones to raise the Black Pearl. Time is up. His part of the deal was to give Davy Jones his soul.
Once Will finds Jack, unaware of the current situation, Jack coaxes Will into boarding Davy Jones's ship, the Flying Dutchman, and retrieve a mysterious key. This key opens the chest that contains Davy Jones's secret. With it, you can control Davy Jones and his fearsome beast, The Kraken. Once Will retrieves said key, Davy Jones is hot on his trail, now hunting down both Jack and Will. It is now a dangerous race against time. Can Jack, Will, Elizabeth and their crew find a way to reach the chest and stop Davy Jones, before he finds them and sends them all to a watery grave?

Throughout the movie, many references are made to the original Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl (2003). These include the following: Cutler Beckett is corrected by Elizabeth and Will when he fails to refer to Jack Sparrow as "Captain" (Jack insisted on being called "Captain Jack Sparrow" in the first movie); Governor Swann breaks off an arm of a candlestick inside the dungeon (the same happened to Will in the Governor's house in the first movie); Governor Swann asks where the "dog with the keys" is; the dog is still holding the keys in the rowboat; Jack asks, "Why is the rum always gone?" (he asked Elizabeth the same twice in the first movie); Will gets slapped by a lady in Tortuga (Jack's being slapped by ladies he once mistreated was a running joke in the first film); Jack says "Hide the rum" when Elizabeth arrives (Elizabeth burned his rum in the first movie); a running gag plays on the fact that Jack the monkey is immortal (he stole one of the Cortez coins in the post-credits scene at the end of the first film).
