    Summary: 
    In the seventies, coke hit Miami with the full force of a hurricane, and no place attracted dealers and dopers like Coconut Grove's Mutiny at Sailboat Bay. It was a hotel and club that embodied the decadence of Miami's cocaine cowboys heyday-- and an inspiration for the film, Scarface. Three waves of Cuban immigrants vied to dominate the trafficking, but as the kilos-- and bodies-- began to pile up, the Mutiny became target number one for law enforcement. Farzad examines a city high on excess and greed, and offers an unprecedented view of the rise and fall of cocaine-- and the Mutiny-- in Miami.
