The Tempest is set on a remote island, where powerful Prospero, the exiled Duke of Milan, plots to restore her daughter Miranda to her rightful role as Princess of Milan.  Prospero uses her magical tricks to conjure a stormy tempest to cause her traitorous brother Antonio and the complicit King Alonso of Naples to believe they are shipwrecked and stranded on the island. It is there on the island that Antonio's betrayal is exposed, and Prospero must decide between the opportunities of revenge for the treacherous acts against her or the kinder path of forgiveness and reconciliation.
