Viola never felt anywhere she ever lived was home until she met her family in the back alleys of Atlantic City.
Set in the early 90's, The Promenade is a nostalgic look at our obsession with drugs and crime. Pulling from historic and cultural events of this iconic decade, a story of greed, lust, friendship, love, and all the other means we use to get high, unfolds.
After being traded through several foster homes, Viola decides to run away with her best friend Avery to the bright lights and promise of Atlantic City. After a few years they realize that the only way to continue to make ends meet is to help run drugs for their friend Camden.
Viola's plight seems to improve for the first few years of their illegal endeavor, but eventually it tears their lives and friendships into pieces. As profits and greed rise disproportionatily, the friends begin to question everything, including eachother; and some of them may be right.
