It's Art Basel, Miami's week-long festival where the rich and famous party with impunity. Julie reigns queen at the South Beach hotel owned by her real estate mogul father. Tonight he’s thrown a decadent blowout but when her fiancé breaks up with her in front of the crowd, Julie hides out in the storage kitchen, humiliated and devastated. She is comforted by Christine, a cocktail waitress from war-torn Venezuela, whom her father has paid to get her home discretely. Christine calls her fiancé, John, an Uber driver from the Miami slums. But Julie refuses to let the night end unless it’s on her terms…A bold and contemporary take on Strindberg’s Miss Julie from a writer of the Emmy-nominated The Americans
