Prospero was the Duke of Milan - that is, before he was usurped by his brother and banished to an island on the coast with his young daughter, Miranda. The two live on a mystical island with creatures such as spirits and fish monsters.

     When a ship of noblemen crashes ashore during a tempest, caused by Prospero’s magic and the spirit, Ariel, A revenge plot begins to unravel. With the noblemen now under his power, Prospero plans to get his rightful place back as Duke of Milan, and with his daughter now in love with one of these men, the job is almost too easy. As one might guess, many magical antics follow.
