The Tempest tells the story of the Prospero, Duke of Milan and his quest to leave the island he and his teenaged daughter have been trapped on for twelve long years trapped on the island with the only other beings on the tiny island a nature spirit - Ariel - whom Prospero freed from the trunk of an Oak tree, and a bestial, humanoid - Caliban - spawn of the witch Sycorex and the demon Setebos. Hours before the play begins, Prospero, using him magic, sees his enemies on a ship near the island, returning from a trip to Algiers, Prospero raises a great Tempest with his magic, and shipwrecks his enemies on his island. Bent on revenge Prospero's thirst for revenge turns into forgiveness when he witnesses his daughter and his enemy's son fall in love.
