Project Synopsis
The story starts on an enchanted island where a magician named Prospero and his daughter Miranda live. They are on this deserted island because of Prospero's brother Antonio and the King of Naples, Alonso. Prospero takes revenge, and with all his magic lures Antonio, the King and several other characters to the island. Many events take place on the island, and eventually everyone feels guilty and sorry for their actions. Thanks to Prospero's spirit Ariel, who used to be a slave of the evil witch Sycorax, all return safely to Italy in the end.
