We’ve Got Magic to Do. Stripped of power, position, and wealth, for 12 long years Prospero has plotted in exile on an enchanted island, waiting to exact revenge. When enemies sail too close, Prospero conjures a magical storm to shipwreck the passengers. The mysterious island holds secrets, along with curious creatures and fantastical spirits. While dispensing justice and watching over his daughter’s emerging romance, Prospero’s old wounds begin to heal, and reconciliation and forgiveness seem within reach for all.
