paradise city. miami, florida. 1947. drama/crime.
it’s 1947 and the glamorous emerald isle hotel and resort is bustling with activity – on the surface it’s a luxurious spot where the rich go to relax from their monotonous lives, but once you dwell deeper you’ll quickly see the place for what it truly is; a hotspot for criminal activity and secret transactions. it’s become known among guests and staff alike for the shady deals that are always going on behind the scenes and for the infamous family running the place that always seem to be at the center of the action.
it’s all smoke and mirrors for the staff of emerald isle – you’d never guess that the world-renowned singer and dancer entertaining every night is prostituting herself to the bored husbands that frequent the hotel to make ends meet, or that the waiters will poison a man’s drink for the right price - as long as he hasn’t offered more to do the same to you.
