The modern retelling of this forgotten gem from the Renaissance tells the story of Segismundo (Sean San José), a prince imprisoned from infancy by his father, King Basilio (Adrian Roberts), who saw “ill-fated omens” warning that the prince would destroy the kingdom. Basilio reconsiders Segismundo’s imprisonment and gives his grown son a chance to prove the prophesy false. What follows is a plot full of love triangles, conflicting loyalties, and a fierce power struggle between father and son that determines the fate of a nation.
