Dubbed �The IT boy� by People magazine, Chris Troiano (Jason Gedrick) is the founder of South Beach�s most famous 1990�s era nightclubs, frequented by top models and stars, including the likes of Madonna, Kate Moss and the Versaces. When Chris, with the help of his new and mysterious best friend Andy Burnett (Donnie Wahlberg), opens up one of the hottest nightspots to ever hit the Miami scene, trouble begins. They may be living new exhilarating lifestyles in South Beach, but secret pasts harbored by Chris and Andy are about to change everything. Once these pasts inevitably collide in a whirlwind of sexy models, mobsters, money and murder, Chris, Andy and South Beach are never the same.
