On a distant island a man waits. Robbed of his position, power and wealth, his enemies have left him
in isolation. But this is no ordinary man, and this no ordinary island. Prospero is a magician, able
to control the very elements and bend nature to his will. When a sail appears on the horizon, he
reaches out across the ocean to the ship that carries the men who wronged him. Creating a vast
magical storm he wrecks the ship and washes his enemies up on the shore. When they wake they
find themselves lost on a fantastical island where nothing is as it seems.
