A king, mad with jealousy, and a kingdom thrown into chaos. A beautiful queen, imprisoned and left for dead. A foundling child, abandoned on the wild shore of a distant and now enemy country.
But this outcast child raised by strangers becomes a remarkable young woman who falls in love with a prince. With the help of a wise elder, she faces danger to heal two families and two lands.
Then with the aid of an old woman who becomes his conscience and maybe a magician, the remorseful king gets an unexpected second chance at happiness, in one of the most theatrical endings in Shakespeare.
