Even Ernest himself would probably have fled Key West's Hemingway Days celebration - a week of raucous tourists and swaggering Papa pretenders that send locals into hiding. Thus the low profile assumed by Gideon Lowry, playing his weekly piano gig at a quiet hotel, fighting his daily urge for a drink. That's where Asia - just Asia, like Madonna - finds him. Beret-clad, with lips the color of a plum, she glides into Gideon's world on the breathless end of a classic tune. She's left her aerie at MTV to find her estranged husband, who's lost in the reverie surrounding his obsession: Hemingway. But Asia doesn't want him back, she wants a divorce - and is ready to pay handsomely for it.
As the Hemingway festival builds to its crescendo, mainland violence pays a nasty visit. There's an evil dancing behind the carefree facades of Duval Street, and it will take every sun-bitten ounce of Gideon's Conch resolve to reel it in...
