WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

In this intense, moving drama, lead character Joe Keller is a man who loves his family above all else. He has sacrificed everything, including his honor, in his struggle to make the family prosperous. Having lost one son during the war, he is keen to see his remaining son marry and enjoy the fruits of his labor. Based on the true story of a factory owner who caused the death of several American soldiers during World War I by selling defective parts to the government, All My Sons examines the morality of a war profiteer who places his narrow responsibility to his immediate family above his universal responsibility to men who relied on the integrity of his work. Arthur Miller's captivating home-front drama of a family struggling with its wartime secrets still resonates today as a moving exploration of the paradoxes and illusions upon which the American dream is built.
