Miami Beach, 1959. As Ike Evans (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) 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. Owner Ike Evans is the star of the hotel. But at what price? Ben "The Butcher" Diamond (Danny Huston) financed like's dream, and now his life is a facade...just like the Miramar Playa. With diving clowns by day, and escorts at night, nothing's what it seems in Magic City.
