Miami Beach, 1959. As Ike Evans rings in the New Year at his luxurious Miramar Playa Hotel, Castro's rebels seize Havana. Miami is turbulent but the Kennedys, the mob and the CIA all hold court here. And Ike, he's the star of his hotel. But everything comes at a price. To finance his dream, Ike sold his soul to mob boss Ben "The Butcher" Diamond. Ike's wife Vera, a former showgirl, and his three kids all think he's an honorable man, but he can't break his pact with the devil. His life is a facade. In fact, nothing at the Miramar Playa is what it seems. The days are sunny but the nights are shady. As Ike's world threatens to implode, he fights for his family, and the Miramar Playa, in Magic City.
