modern shakespeare / the tempest
When a billionaire CEO and his scheming affiliates get stranded after a storm, all hell breaks loose; especially when they find out that the boss’ son, Ferdinand, and his idiot friends are missing. Little do they know that the island that they’ve washed up on is actually inhabited. And inhabited by none other than Prospero, their old business partner, who they completely ripped off. Seeking refuge after losing all his money, Prospero found this island, and employed the only two people living there: a young, intelligent fisherman named Ariel, and a grumpy, crass native named Caliban. Together with his daughter Miranda, the old man rebuilt his life, and upon finding out that the very people who destroyed it were on his island, Prospero takes it upon himself to lay down some justice.
