What is Stone Ocean About?
In 2011, Jolyne Cujoh finds herself in an accident in Florida while on a drive with her sweetheart. Unfortunately, she then falls into a trap and is sentenced to fifteen years at the state-run maximum-security correctional facility, Green Dolphin Street Prison, also known as the Aquarium. But, Jolyne doesn’t have to wait in despair for too long as unusual events are about to change her fate.
She receives a pendant from her father that awakens a mysterious power inside of her. It all starts with a message from a mysterious boy who appears before Jolyne. This kicks off a series of strange events that occur in quick succession, beginning the final battle to end the century-long, fateful confrontations between the Joestar family and DIO.
