SYNOPSIS: Winner of the Pulitzer Prize in Drama, this sensational drama tells the story of Troy Maxson, a former star of the Negro baseball leagues who now works as a garbage man in 1957 Pittsburgh. Excluded as a black man from the major leagues during his prime, Troy's bitterness takes its toll on his relationships with his wife and his son, who now wants his own chance to play ball. Adapted into an award-winning film starring Denzel Washington.
