The Roaring 20ís was a time of excess, lavish parties and speakeasies. Jay Gatsby was a secretive and successful kingpin of the elite party circuit, but he had one burning desire and one purpose - to be with Daisy Buchanan, the love of his life from his youth. Set on Long Island in 1922, this compelling drama portrays the human condition of ambition, love, lust, greed, deceit, and most of all the struggles of class and the American Dream.
