Miranda was only a child when she debarked on the island with her father, Prospero. She remembers little of her life before then, knowing only that they arrived by sea. A solitary child, she spent her youth playing alone and watching the sea, day in and day out. Over time, as she grew into the island’s sole woman, she would come to know only two things: the island and the sea that separated her from the rest of the world. Then one day, out of this dark sea of the unknown, a Stranger arrived on the island. And it is upon this island that we rejoin Miranda on her journey. The island, our island, this circle of the familiar, surrounded by a deep and inscrutable sea; a sea that separates us from a world. And from this world, a Stranger arrives carrying with him all of the desires, the fears, and the ghosts that are wont to will themselves into existence during long days spent gazing upon the sea.
