Maja, the pregnant wife of the unimaginably wealthy Philippe, is killed in a plane crash, but their daughter Angelica survives. Philippe’s obsession with the girl’s safety becomes something sinister and grotesque as she grows into a beautiful teen. A young man named Darius, visiting Philippe with a business proposition, encounters Angelica and intuits their secret — he decides to rescue her, but the attempt goes awry and he flees England by sea. As Angelique comes to terms with a life imprisoned on her father’s estate, Darius morphs into Pericles, from Shakepeare’s play of the same name, voyaging through a mythic world in an attempt to save her.
