Willy Loman, a salesman, returns home late at night from the business trip on which he set out that morning, having been unable to make the drive. Willy's wife Linda urges him to see his boss and ask to work in the city rather than having to travel to a distant territory. Besides his career, Willy is worried about his sons—especially Biff, who has drifted since finishing high school and choosing not to go to college. Biff's troubles have something to do with what happened when he went to visit Willy in Boston years ago.The next day, Willy sets out to see his boss, Howard, and Biff goes to visit a former employer with a business proposition Willy is convinced will turn Biff's life around. But Willy's dreams are mostly just that—dreams. Despite all the years he has worked for the same company, Willy is no longer valued, and can't pay his bills.
