More about MAGIC CITY
Set in Miami Beach 1959, MAGIC CITY, provides the sultry backdrop for the riveting tale of the city’s emergence as an international destination for celebrities, politicians and America's most notorious gangsters. As Miami reels from the aftershocks of political unrest in Cuba, the Miramar suddenly finds itself the new home for armed Cuban exiles longing for home and a den of intrigue between the CIA and Miami’s own ambitious State's Attorney. Gangsters flushed from their cash-rich Havana casinos look to find a new revenue stream on the sunny beaches of Florida. Ike Evans will use the turbulence in the "Magic City" to his own ends -- risking his friendships, his family and his own life.
