The magician and former Duke of Milan, Prospero, lives on a deserted island with his daughter Miranda. He once fled to that after being chased away by his brother Antonio and the Duke of Naples, Alonso. In the meantime he has made subjects of the air spirit Ariel and Caliban, the son of a witch. It is Ariel who ensures that Antonio, Alonso and his son Ferdinand are shipwrecked by a storm and stranded on the island. Here Ferdinand meets Miranda – and both fall madly in love with each other. But how is this love to endure where the fathers are at enmity with one another? How will Prospero use his magical powers? How will he, who is a prisoner on the island, deal with his prisoners?
