The Younger family live in a small, shared apartment in Chicago. They are getting a $10,000 insurance check since Big Walter died. Walter wanted to invest in a liquor store, Beneatha need it for medical school. Ruth found out that she's pregnant.
Walter went missing for 3 days because Mama didn't give the money to him. Ruth wanted to do an abortion. Mama bought a house in Clybourne Park to lit up the family mood.
Walter finally got the remaining $6,500. It is supposed to be for Beneatha's schooling and the family bank account. Walter used all of it to invest in liquor store instead. Lindner offered the Youngers an amount of money to live somewhere else, they refused.
Bobo informed Walter that Willy Harris has taken all the money and vanished. The Youngers found out and felt disappointed about Walter.
Walter called Lindner to take the offer, which made Mama felt horrible about Walter since Walter was not fighting for racial segregation. At the same time, Asagai proposed to Beneatha to marry him and come to Nigeria to be a doctor.
Walter changed his mind and did not take the money from Lindner to make sure that he would be a good role model for his son. He finally realized that nothing can replace your dignity. The family moved to the new house with excitement!
