The musical depicts immigrants living in the slums of New York City during a single day in 1946. The story revolves around several characters, including Anna Maurant, a woman with a brutal husband, who finds friendship and compassion with the milkman Sankey; daughter Rose, who longs to get escape her troubled home; and Sam Kaplan, a bookish law student. A Greek chorus and cast of over forty tell this beautiful and touching story of love and loss in pursuit of the American Dream.
