       It is about a young woman, Caliban, a mythical figure in 2018, dealing with her adoptive father Prospero. In the story we discover that she discovers that Prospero killed her mother Sycorax. The ecological forces that know this and have protected Sycorax's mythical spirit are the trees of Prospero's Island. The trees draw Caliban over to the forbidden side of the Isle and they teach Caliban aobut her mother. From both Prospero's science of manifestation and Sycorax's magic, preserved in the trees, Caliban conjures a storm to evict Prospero and Mirand. They go off to work for Monsanto-Bayer, and Caliban protects the Island.
