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 ship that carries the men who wronged him appears on the horizon, Prospero reaches out across the ocean and creates a vast magical storm. The vessel is wrecked; its crew is washed up on the shore. They wake to find themselves lost on a fantastical island where nothing is as it seems.
