Prospera (Mirren), an exiled noblewoman with magical powers, conjures a storm to lure a ship onto their remote island home, hoping to find a suitor for her daughter. By chance, among the shipwrecked crewmen is her brother Antonio (Cooper), the architect of her downfall, offering Prospera an irresistible opportunity for revenge.
