The Younger family are African American residents of the Southside of Chicago. The family Patriarch has passed leaving behind a life insurance of $10,000. The individual and conflicting dreams of the family are centered on this insurance check. The death of Mr. Younger and this check become the vehicle, the means, and the source of conflicts. One ambition; to get out of the Black Southside Ghetto and to seek a better life for all.
