The time is World War I. Jimmy Gatz, ambitious North Dakota farm boy, enlists in the Army and succeeds in earning a commission.

But though a romance begins, Daisy's family and the Army intervene. Gatz, who has changed his name to Jay Gatsby, is sent overseas, and the forlorn Daisy is persuaded to marry wealthy Tom Buchanan.
