Having recently returned from military duty during WWI, Nick Carraway moves East and soon finds himself living among the idle rich on Long Island. Nick reacquaints himself with his deeply unhappy cousin, Daisy Buchanan, her philandering husband, Tom, and the 'incurably dishonest' Miss Baker. Before long, Nick is drawn inextricably into their lives and to one man who still believes in the American Dream-Jay Gatsby. As Nick and Gatsby are carried along by forces that neither of them fully controls or understands, they will experience the consequences of materialism, deceit, and petty self-interest.
