Synopsis

A cross-gendered version of the play by William Shakespeare involving forces of feminine magic, nature and mysticism. Changing the gender of the traditionally male sorcerer Prospero into the sorceress-Prospera. Prospera journeys through vengeance to forgiveness as she reigns over a magical island, cares for her young daughter, Miranda, and unleashes her powers against shipwrecked enemies. After a harrowing shipwreck, the members of a royal court are washed ashore on various parts of a mysterious island . Their fateful arrival in this particular island is no coincidence . The exiled Prospera has used her magical powers to guide the ship here to settle a score with the very men who banished her from her homeland . Abetted by her sometimes unwilling aides, Ariel and Caliban, Prospera puts her former tormentors through some dangerous and often hilarious adventures . However, when the king's son, Ferdinand, meets her daughter, Miranda, it is love at first sight-a kind of magic that even Prospera is powerless to control .
