Having discovered a dangerous secret at the court of Antiochus, Pericles is forced to flee his own kingdom and wander the world. He arrives, shipwrecked, in Pentapolis, where he is saved by a fisherman and wins Princess Thaisa for his wife.
Shortly afterwards, however, Thaisa dies at sea giving birth to a child: Marina. Pericles fosters this daughter to a friend. When Marina is also reported dead some years later, he falls into a speechless grief. The story culminates in the redemption of the long-suffering Pericles through a series of seeming miracles.
