Prospero was the true Duke of Milan twelve years ago, but his brother Antonio plotted to have him and his daughter Miranda cast adrift at sea. When the two end up shipwrecked on an island, Prospero becomes a powerful sorcerer, and enslaves the island's magical residents, forcing them into doing his bidding. A violent storm strikes, and a crew of men, including his traitorous brother, is stranded on the forsaken island that Propero governs. The King of Naples' son Ferdinand is among the shipwrecked men. The King, Alonso, collaborated with Antonio to install Antonio in his brother's stead. Ferdinand and Miranda fall in love, but is this all part of a larger scheme? Prospero’s growing magical prowess allows him to utilize magic and trickery to put things in place.
