Returning from World War II, disillusioned Frank McCloud (Danny Pino) travels to a hotel in Key Largo to pay his respects to the widow of a fallen friend. What McCloud doesn’t count on is an entirely different battle with mobsters who have overtaken the hotel, led by the ruthless Johnny Rocco (Andy Garcia). As a hurricane barrels toward the Keys, McCloud must face his demons in order to take down a monster.
