Miami Beach 1959. The beautiful life is about to get ugly.

As the notes of Sinatra breeze by, Ike Evans rings in the New Year at his luxurious Miramar Playa Hotel. Even though turbulent troubles are rife in Miami it’s still THE place to be. The CIA, the Kennedys and the mob hold court here, and Ike, he’s the centre of it all.

But the ‘Magic City’ hosts a sinister side as Ike finances his dream by sacrificing his soul to the Mob Boss Ben “Butcher” Diamond. Ike’s ex-showgirl wife Vera, and his three children trust him, believing him to be an honourable man. But as his world starts to implode, he is forced to fight to save everything close to him, from his family to his beloved Miramar Playa Hotel. Unfotunately for Ike, you can’t break a pact with the devil.

Starring: Jeffrey Dean Morgan (P.S. I Love You, Grey’s Anatomy), Olga Kurylenko (Quantum of Solace), Christian Cooke (Cemetery Junction), Dominik Garcia-Lorido (City Island), Yul Vazquez (American Gangster), Jessica Marais (Packed To The Rafters) and Danny Huston (Children of Men).

“Cuban cigars, palm trees, milk-white sand, the Kennedys, bookies, Sinatra, baby-blue convertibles, swimming pools, Meyer Lansky, nightclubs, cabanas, mobsters, mistresses, showgirls, martinis as big as the Ritz — and even blintzes — are all part of this lush, swoony evocation of Miami Beach in its heyday.” –New York Times
