THE STORY: In a small Boston suburb, a schoolteacher is struggling to get by when the wealthy father of one of her students surprises her with a financial proposal that could change her daughter’s life. Suddenly, their worlds collide in ways that open up the question: What truly separates the haves and the have-nots? Is it wrong to seize an incredible chance, even if the circumstances seem questionable? Loosely inspired by a passage from The Great Gatsby, DAN CODY’S YACHT probes the troubling relationship between finance and educational opportunity in America.
