Fences is the story of Troy Maxson, a middle-aged, embittered African-American father who once dreamed of being a professional baseball player, but now works as a waste collector.
He spends his time going over old glories with his best friend Jim Bono and his wife Rose, who’s heard all his stories before. And when their sons refuse to give up on their dreams as Troy did, his resentments gradually begin to pull the family apart.
