The sorceress Alcina inhabits a world made up of the souls of her past lovers. Her kingdom is in reality a desert – a lifeless place of no moral compass into which she lures her unsuspecting victims. Alcina sets her sights on warrior Ruggiero, who has fallen under her spell. Alcina begins to fall in love with him and wants to keep him as close to her as possible. The more Ruggiero works to free himself from her spells, the more Alcina loses her seductive power. Alcina becomes trapped between the desire for vengeance and the pain of not being loved.
