Living with Markus

A young man with bitter childhood memories is forced to choose between living out his own dreams and rescuing his ungrateful family members from their ill-fated lives.


Thirty-one-year-old Marc Nussbaum has visions of enjoying the finer things in life after building a successful landscaping business—no dependents, no commitments outside of work, no worries. And he’s found the perfect woman to enjoy it with him. But when his dysfunctional family members come to him in serious trouble, he repeatedly shoves his own life aside to run to their aid. After losing sight of his own dreams and his girlfriend, Marc must decide whether to continue saving his relatives from their ill-fated lives, or save himself from entering into a life of self-sacrifice and missed opportunities. But when he finally realizes his purpose in life and how to achieve self-fulfillment, it isn’t at all what he had previously envisioned.
