The Atlantic City Boardwalk in the summer of 1975 isn’t being especially kind to 13-year-old Joey. His grandparents’ kosher hotel is struggling, the city is getting more dangerous by the day, and nobody in his family will take him seriously. So when he gets a job offer from mobster Artie Bishop, the so-called king of Steel Pier, he jumps at the chance to prove his mettle. But running with Artie and his crew means questioning everything he sees and deceiving the people he loves most. And when Artie asks Joey for a very dangerous favor that puts his family at risk, Joey must decide what strength really means to him.
