The Tempest

The Tempest

Illustration of water and fire formed into a heart with text that says, The Tempest.

An isolated island. An exiled sorcerer seeking revenge for a family betrayal. A shipwreck that brings sailors and a royal entourage ashore, allowing the sorcerer’s daughter to encounter other humans for the first time in her memory. Surprises and magic spells abound in Shakespeare’s play of deception, wizardry and romance.
