In this big screen adaptation of Shakespeare's mystical thriller "The Tempest," the gender of the sorcerer Prospero is changed, into the sorceress Prospera (Helen Mirren).

Prospera's journey spirals through vengeance to forgiveness as she reigns over a magical island, cares for her young daughter, Miranda, and unleashes her powers against shipwrecked enemies in this exciting, masterly mix of romance, tragicomedy and the supernatural.
