Florida, USA, 2021. Jolyne Cujoh is framed and sentenced to 15 years in jail after getting in a car accident with her boyfriend. She ends up in Green Dolphin Street prison, also known as “the Aquarium.” Devastated, Jolyne takes her father’s pendant into her hand when a strange power awakens within her.
“There are worse fates than death, and people in this prison are facing such fates.”
Jolyne is relayed this message from a mysterious boy. Inexplicable events happen one after another. While visiting, her father Jotaro Kujo reveals a terrifying truth and mentions a man named Dio. Will Jolyne Cujoh ever free herself from this “stone ocean” that is a prism?
Amid this, a century-old feud between Dio and the Joestars enters its climax.
