Set during World War II, a young girl named Anna accompanies her father on a crucial visit to a mysterious man named Dexter Styles. Years later, Anna becomes the first female diver at Brooklyn Naval Yard, repairing ships for the war effort. Through their chance meeting at a nightclub, Anna begins to unravel the mystery of her father's disappearance and the complexity of his life. "Manhattan Beach" is a propulsive exploration of a transformative moment in American and global history through the lives of gangsters, sailors, divers, bankers, union men, and women breaking into male-dominated fields.
