Synopsis:
Sidney Poitier and Ruby Dee star as members of an African American family living in a cramped Chicago apartment in this deeply resonant tale of dreams deferred. The Youngers await a life-insurance check they hope will change their circumstances, but tensions arise over how to use the money. The film captures the high stakes, shifting currents, and varieties of experience within black life in midcentury America.
