Nick Carraway is an aspiring stock broker in 1920s New York. Living on the outskirts of town, he reestablishes a friendship with his cousin, Daisy Buchanan, and her husband, Tom. Nick also befriends golfer Jordan Baker, who is pressured by Daisy to begin a romance with Nick. Jordan informs Nick of his neighbor, the rich and enigmatic Jay Gatsby who is famed for staging large, flamboyant parties for the region's elite. Attaching himself to Gatsby, Nick learns of a love that was broken between Gatsby and Daisy by the First World War. Now, Nick is caught in the crossroads of a staged game aimed at recreating the past. Soon it begins to show that greatness can sometimes be superficial to a person's real identity, and can inadvertently lead to a total demise.
