Raised in the immigrant culture of Northern New Jersey, Marks need to fulfill familial expectations led to a youth of hard study culminating in a Ph.D. by his mid-20s. Yet underneath this disciplined scientist facade, Mark had always dreamed of a life in the style of Kerouac or Wolfe. Having just returned from the West to the hard-earned affection of the woman he loves, Mark struggles to retain both his deep-seated ambitions to become a novelist and his idealist passion for science, even as heartbreak, financial hardship, and the failing confidence of his artist friends threaten to unhinge his most deep-seated beliefs about relationships, careers, and the pursuit of dreams.

A telling story of a country caught up in the aimless credit-laden materialism of a real estate bubble, EASTBOUND follows the romance and travails of a man in his late 20s, as he and his friends chase their unconventional aspirations in an era dominated by apathy, materialism, and self-interest. A juxtaposition of gritty idealism and romance, as drawn against the contrasting backdrops of New York and Charleston, EASTBOUND confronts the difficult decisions of late 20-somethings as they struggle with the consequences of ambition as they edge toward an uncertain future while striving for more than the suburban bliss of their upbringing.
