Characters from Shakespeare's Twelfth Night and The Tempest intertwine as a pair of twins are shipwrecked on an island, encountering a half-human “monster,” fairies and a young girl with magical powers who has been there since babyhood. Mortals will struggle with the magical; loyalty will wrestle with love, and wishes, dreams, and wisdom will collide, leaving no one unchanged.
