Characters from Shakespeare's Twelfth Night and The Tempest intertwine as a pair of twins are shipwrecked on an island, encountering a young girl with magical powers who has been there since babyhood. A struggle ensues amongst them between the mortal and the magical; between loyalty and love; between wishes, dreams and wisdom.
