A New York slum at the time of the premiere in 1947: the heat drives the inhabitants out into the street. They come from a wide variety of cultural backgrounds and represent a cross-section of the predominantly European immigrants. The central figures are the Maurrants, who at first sight appear to be an unremarkable, typical American family. But beneath the façade the drama of disillusioned America is concealed, personified by the sensitive Anna Maurrant who is torn between her duties as a mother and everyday cares.
