As Joe sits in his yard and reads his paper, he and his neighbors, Jim and Frank, make small talk about the weather and all the bad news the paper contains.

The drama concentrates upon the life of a businessman, Joe Keller, who, at one time, by a whisker, averted business dilapidation due to the distribution of cracked cylinder heads to the Air-force, resulting in the deaths of 21 pilots, and indirectly, but ultimately the death of his son. However, he cowardly incriminated his business partner, and friend, going on to build a wealthy, thriving business, however, his evildoing eventually comes back to haunt him. Keller's crucial error is, undoubtedly the selling of the faulty cylinder airheads to the military, and resultantly, Keller ultimately pays with his life for his crime, seen as a cowardly evasion of justice and the punishment — some feel — he truly deserves. Although Joe Keller was a victim of the war, Keller remains at fault on all accounts of unfaithfulness to a friend, dishonour to his family, and treachery to a nation.
The events of the play occur on a single set, the back yard of the Keller home, where a tree has recently been torn down by a storm. The Kellers are solidly middle-class and have a working-class background. They are not rich, but they are financially comfortable, and there is a sense throughout the play that they worked hard to reach this state of stability.
