Strawberry Barrino and his friend Geno Fabulous reconnect after Geno returns from the Air Force in 1960.
Strawberry brings his friend into the underground life. A key player in this game is Jena Collins, one-time squeeze of Geno’s, now working for Strawberry. Barrino is waging wars to control the seedy beach bars and downtown dives. Geno is fighting the Low Country's undertow of drink and drugs.
In 1960, Strawberry experiments with his sexuality while facing crime families. Will Strawberry and Geno find peace and power or pieces of death and decay? Will Jena remain with Strawberry or remain like the unpredictable Atlantic?
From Myrtle Beach to the Isle of Palms, Strawberry fights various crews and families for control of not only the Low Country, but for Geno Fabulous and Jena Collins.
